Hello Everyone. I'm really glad i came across this thread. I have just been in touch with my vet this morning as my 1yr old sav has the same bump on her nose. He said that its not an emergency, but would like to see her. We are booked in for next week on a routine app. How did everyone else cat get on? Im so worried, i lost a bengal at just 1 yr old last year to FIP, i dont think i could lose my little nina. Im worried sick. Like you have all said though, doesn't seem to bother her, she eats, plays and acts crazy and shes gaining weight. Please see the images below

Hi Emma.

This looks very similar to Pepi's lump which came on when he was about 18 months! He is now nearly 3 years old and still absolutely fine (touch wood!) the lump has remained but not changes shape or size. When he went for his annual jabs a couple of months ago the vet said it is likely thickened cartilage and to not worry unless it changes size or shape.

I hope it all goes well at the vet with Nina - i'm sure it will be fine :)

My Juno also developed a little bump on her nose as a kitten, which I worried about after reading this thread. At her last wellness visit in September, I asked the vet about it and she said it was likely mild damage to her nose cartilage caused by the very bad URI she had as a kitten (she was born feral and was very sick when rescued, and then had another bad flare when I adopted her). I will continue to monitor but the vet didn't think it merited putting her through any testing at this point. 🤞

Hi! I am sorry everyone is going through any sort of co cern about their sweet beloved kitties. I am, however, grateful to have found this thread. I rescued Titus several months ago from the outdoors. He is roughly 10 y/o and a whopping 18 lbs!! He also has this hard bump on the bridge of his nose.

No vet has seemed to think no big deal. Thanks for letting me know the possibilities and that we are not alone! He has been an outdoor at his whole life so I believed it was maybe an old injury. Now I know it could be something else and to watch. Good luck and god bless!

My kitten has this bump too! I just noticed it the other day so I'm not sure how long it's been there. He does snore a lot but he's not acting any differently - he has tons of energy and loves to eat. It feels not as hard as bone, it's a little bit squishy but it doesn't seem to hurt him when I poke it. Not sure when to worry but hoping his behavior will be an indicator of something being wrong
