Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
My name is ***** ***** I am a small animal vet with many years experience and rest assured I will do my best to answer your question to your satisfaction today.
Please tell me how long this tick like object has been visible?
Ticks will fall off after five days or so, this confirms you are not dealing with a tick, on the other hand very often various non malignant lumps, bumps and cysts can occur in this area.
The problem is that removal will often mean a minor surgery session as there are really no alternatives such as drugs etc.
Most of the lesions such as you describe which I have seen in the past were non malignant usually soft warty type structures but there is always the possibility that the odd one could be malignant so it is always best to have your vet check it over
Your vet will advise on removal, this is not something you will be able to do on your own ...
