A Lump Discovered


Yesterday was extremely hot. 

To help cool the MeowYard, EJ kept mopping the floor. The cats all slept stretched out on the damp floor.

The one who slept cutest of all was Kenggy who was fully stretched exposing her fat belly. Well, it was simply too irresistable not to touch. Trying not to disturb Kenggy's afternoon siesta, EJ crept near and gently stroke that exposed fat belly and felt a small lump! 

Hoping that it was matted fur, EJ felt it again. It is indeed a mammary mass. Immediately an appointment was made with her vet.

Kenggy and EJ just came back from the clinic. It is hoped that her mammary mass is benign so mastectomy is not necessary. 

It happens to some senior female cats. For now, there will be no treatment for Kenggy and EJ is to monitor that lump for any changes.

Oh thank Goodness, they think it is benign. Those lumps are so scary. Sending tons of purrs and prayers that it remains the same.

We agree with Marg. More than likely it is benign and you are wise not to worry but to keep an eye on it. Purrs and kisses to Kenggy
