Tests for Growth

A few months ago, a small lump was discovered on Kenggy's mammary gland. Please click on here if you wish to know how it was discovered.

That lump has almost doubled in size. An appointment for multiple tests with her vet has been made and is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

The red arrow shows an angry swollen nipple and its surrounding area in contrast to the other normal nipple arrowed blue.

A closer look.

Yesterday, another growth was discovered. This time on Tanya's lower lip. It was hardly visible as it was the same colour as her lower lip with her upper lip covering it.

EJ pulled Tanya's head back to reveal the offending lump.

It was decided that Tanya will join Kenggy for consultations on Monday.
So far both of them did not show signs of discomfort. Perhaps both are great pretenders!

And because they are such great pretenders, it worries EJ so, as the seriousness of the illness is not known. EJ would be happy if they complain, wince or even howl.

A while ago, EJ found this little matted fur on the MeowRoom floor. It looked suspiciously familiar. EJ quickly went to Tanya, pried and peered into her mouth. That supposedly offending lump on her lip was not there!

You could never imagine how happy and relieved EJ was!

Relief for Tanya was definitely the feeling. But of course now thoughts and prayers go up for Kenggy - how lucky she is to have a human like EJ who is so attentive.

Lots of love and wishes for impending tests. Hugs and kisses, YAM-aunty xxx

What a relief! We hope that everything goes well for Kenggy!

Fuzzy Tales said...

That's a huge relief re: Tanya, but we're sending purrs for Kenggy, that whatever the lump is, it's benign.

Marg said...

We sure do send all of our purrs to you Kenggy. Tonja, weren't you smart to just knock that lump off. Must have been some kind of a hair mat. Keep us posted about Kenggy.

We are so pleased Tanya's lump was just some matted furs - that is the best kind. We are purring hard for Kenggy and hope the small lump is benign.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Ohmadog, did she ate her fur?
I always have lumps like Keeper.
Someday, the doctors will find us and get rid of our lumps and us! Yikes!

We are purring for Kengy and hope all goes well at the vet. And Tanya, who woulda thunk that the lump was a mat!

I am fairly certain that all is ok! Cody has something similar on his belly that the vet says is nothing.
Also...have you ever noticed that Cody's mouth is strange? Many people comment on it. He has some extra "pink" in his mouth too, he has had it for years and the vet says that that too, is fine!
It is always better for them to be checked but I am hoping (and am fairly certain) that all is fine. Keeping my paws crossed!

Arti said...

Its great that the lump fell off! Also good luck for those tests, they will all be negative :)
Have a lovely day :)

Big purrs for Kenggy and hopes that it's benign. We know you're all worried. It's good to hear that Tanya doesn't have a mass, too. Who would have thought that fur would appear to be a mass like that?

Kat said...

So glad that Tanya is ok and I do hope that Kenggy too is fine and the lump nothing serious. Good luck dearest kitties!

Brian said...

We will all be sending our best purrs to you Kenggy. We are happy that Tanya is doing okay now.

Katnip Lounge said...

One down, and one to go...we are purring hard that nothing serious is wrong with Kenggy.

The Lee County Clowder said...

Purrrrrng that Kenggy has nothing serious wrong with her.

Purrs for Kenggy vet visit tomorrow

Catherine said...

Sending good thoughts that everything is OK!

I hope Kenggy's lump turns out to be as benign as Tanya's was, although I hardly think it will be a lump of semi-digested cat hair.
Love and hugs to Kenggy and to you, EJ.

It is so darn hard keeping my little ones out of harm's way. There determination to eat threads will be the death of me. Good luck with those tests.

Oh, Kenggy, we are purring and praying for you, sweet friend!
