I have a 14-year-old cat who the other day had a lot of pain on one side between his hind legs and front legs.
As soon as I grabbed her she screamed and growled.
I cut her hair and she had a big open wound.
I rubbed some alcohol in it and put on a bandage for a day.
Now there is a bump on the other side that has already grown 5 cm in circumference approximately. She does not seem to be in pain when I feel it.
She eats and walks on the box, but she basically sleeps all day and moves slowly.
She is also very lean, even though she eats well.
It can also be felt on the crust she has after the other day, that a bump grows underneath, but not so big.
I suspect cancer… the lumps seem to grow extremely fast.
Could the wound she had be a lump that has burst?
What do you think?
Unfortunately, it is very difficult to say whether the wound may have been an abscess without having seen your cat.
Is your cat an outdoor cat?
Could it be that she has been in a fight with another cat in the neighborhood?
When cats fight and tear and / or bite each other, there are small wounds that heal quickly, but bacteria can be encapsulated that give rise to bumps.
The bacteria come from the cat’s claws and / or mouth and they can multiply quickly, where they form and the abscess grows.
In the end, the abscesses are often so filled with that they burst. Maybe that’s what happened to your cat?
I would recommend that you see a veterinarian who can examine your cat.
The veterinarian can then examine both the lumps / abscesses and also your cat’s general condition since she is both thin and seems tired.
