Cat with small grey bump under her skin, the size of a BB. What is it and what to do?!
I befriended a cat that lives nearby. Today she came over covered in blood. I don't know if she got in a fight or just killed and ate something. After I cleaned her up I noticed a small light grey bump under her skin the size of a BB. I was able to roll it around under the skin a bit. There seemed to be no hole or wound near the area. I'm relatively sure it wasn't there a few days ago. I am disabled and can't drive nor do I have money for a vet. I don't want to take her to a shelter in case she might belong to someone. What could this be? Is there something I can do to help her? She doesn't seem to be bothered by it, she's eating fine and she seems okay. At first I thought it -was- a BB but there is no wound near by. Will she be okay? Please only answer if you know what I can do. Simply saying "take her to a vet" is not what I'm looking for. I'll watch her for a few days and if it gets bad I'll take her to a shelter if I have to. However, if there's something I can do for her or if it will resolve itself I'd rather know now so I don't worry myself sick. Please help!
