oval shaped bald bumps on cats legs

hi. i have a cat named WAffles, nd hes a tabby. he has a few small bumps on his front and hind legs. their all bald and oval shaped. their hard and pink. hes had the first one for a while and it hasnt gone away. the other one i noticed today. hes 2-4 years old, im honestly not sure. they dont seem to bother him but hes outside a lot so he may scratch and bite them outside bit i dont think so. hes very fit and not too fat or too skinny. he does fight the other cats that i own a lot, and im constantly pulling him apart from the black cat that lives in my neighborhood. im not sure why they hate eachother but they do... im kind of worried about the bumps. should i take him to the vet or is he okay? and if hes not okay should i separate him from all other cats?

Answer by Kate
are you sure they are not ticks? Ticks when attached can loot like little lumps as you can;t see their heads.


The other possibility is that they are scar tissue or even cysts from wounds. I think if it were me I would take him to the vets to have them checked out.

Hope he is Ok again soon

best wishes Kate
