Lump on her tail


My cat has a lump on her tail. I know it bothers her too because she won't let you touch it. I have no idea where she got it. She is an indoor only cat. Any ideas on what it could be?


At some point you need to get her down and take a close look. It could be she has injured herself and this is a pocket of infection. I had that happen to one of my cats many years ago. After we drained the infection and treated it with peroxide, she healed and was back to normal.


If it wasn't bothering her, I would suggest it could be a fatty deposit. My cat has a few of those. But if she is shying away from you, I think you do need to do a thorough inspection.
