Anybody know anything about them?
Just as I was about to go to bed (I'm in the US) I noticed something odd on my little female cat. I thought there was some food stuck in her fur near her whiskers, so picked her up and tried to wipe it off. She put up a bit of a fuss and I looked closer. My first thought was it was an engorged tick or something. So I got the tweezers. Then I realized that it didn't look like a tick, but was skin.
Some internet searching for cat cancer and such led me to some info on mast cell tumors. The one on her looks like the photos I saw online. I'll call the vet first thing in the AM, but I'm sure that they're swamped right before Christmas! She just had a checkup last month, too...
Now I'm going to try to go to sleep, but I'm, not optimistic that I'll sleep well.
