Hey everyone, hope you’re all ok. First time posting here. I came across this forum while looking answers to what’s on my cats foot.

She’s got an appointment in a couple days but just wondered if anyone else has come across this before? I just want to be prepared.

She’s 13, and does go outside but only to sleep in the flower beds or under the patio furniture.

Thanks in advance x

Hi. My first reaction is that it could be a cyst, which are typically benign. Is this a front or back paw? I can't tell from the pic, but if a front paw could it be on/near the carpal pad?

You might consider sending that pic to the vet and see what they have to say ahead of the appointment.

It could be a benign tumor or cyst. Email the picture to your vet for a quick assessment.

Thank you both for the replies. It’s on her back foot.
I don’t think my vets do emailing, when I rang to book an appointment, they never mentioned that I could send a picture over.
I’m hoping it’s nothing, she’s walking fine so hopefully she will be ok x

I've never had a vet offer for me to send them pics, but when asked directly, they have said they will take pics that way. So, you could just call and ask.
