Lump under cats tail
by Catherine Price
(Poole, Dorset, England)
Hello there I have 17 week old black oriental boy. I have come home from work this evening and when I picked him up to stroke him, I noticed that he now has a solid lump at the base underneath of his tail about 1 inch away from the top of his anus. I have never noticed this before and certainly would have picked up on it when I purchased him any indication on what it could be??
I do have a red point siamese, bi colour siamese and a bi colour oriental they do play an awful lot and sometimes quite rough at times do you think he could have fallen whilst playing with the others??

Umm well not being a vet myself I wouldn't like to try and diagnose what it could be. you may be right, and it is a scratch which has become infected. However it may also have something to do with his glands. I know that some oriental breeds do have more issues with their anal glands and need them drained occasionally.
Either way I'm sure that the vet will be able to diagnose the issue easily and be able to advise you accordingly.
best wishes and I hope all is well soon.
