Hi! They seem to look the same as the ones my cat used to have. They shrinked by themselves a week or two after getting her spayed. I don't know if yours' has been recently spayed, that may be the cause. Also there's a condition calles mammary hyperplasia, this can happen on spayed cats too, so that may be also what is happening.

Either way I'm not a professional so this ideas are just based on my personal experience. I would definitely get her checked as soon as possible, because mammary hyperplasia can get really bad if it's let untreated. :)


You shouldn't worry but definitely get her checked to discard anything else.

Keep us posted, I'll be glad to help you in whatever you may need!

Well it's almost a month since she was spayed. I asked her vet and still waiting for an answer :)

btw, if it's mammary hyperplasia, does it require an operation or just intake of meds?
and lastly, what would you recommend feeding an 8-month old Cat? I feed her wet food but she gets tired of it immediately.

I don't think she will need any other treatment like surgery or whatever unless it get's really bad, but I can see this is not the case at the time :)

I actually have an 8 -9 month cat right now and I'll been feeding her with dry food for several months now, maybe it's now time to make the switch to the other food. I'm sure she will love it such as mine! Although my vet told me that the wet+dry food combination is great for their health, so maybe you can try that also. But she can definitely eat dry food at her age.

What did the Vet do to your baby? :)

I did feed her dry + wet, but then she doesn't eat it all. That's why I switched to wet haha but I see her sneaking outside eating her momma's dry food. so I'm really confused as to what she really likes.

The treatment was to spay her right away, they do performed a biopsy while on the procedure. Although the biopsy results came days after all the lumps where gone, so thankfully the diagnosis was pretty obvious.

Haha that's weird, although my baby also did that with our older cat's food. We then switched to another brand and problem solved. Maybe you can try that. We have tried two different brands and three different flavors, until we got one that matched everyone's taste :)

I do really need to take her to the vet 'no? Mine's already spayed. Maybe this weekend I'll bring her. I'm too busy with work :(

She likes tuna and chicken by aozi but doesn't really like the chicken flavor only lol. But thank you! Will update you with the results! :D

Yes I think that you should take her as soon as you get any chance! It can get really bad.

And yes keep us posted! :)
