Tucker is the next cat on my worry list. In this case, it is his nose. It looks like a small scab has formed under one of his nostrils. At one point, it disappeared, as if it healed and fell off, but then it returned almost the next day. It may be nothing more than a scrape. He may have started whapping at someone and they whapped back.
But his eye on the same side looks like it is a little troublesome, though he is not physically bothered by it, that I can tell. I will take him in to the doctor to see about it, but not yet. Raleigh’s check-up is coming, probably next week, and that will occupy my funds for the time being.
When one has several cats, there is always something to be concerned about. And when there isn’t, I’m concerned that I am missing something.
Tucker, have you been wrestling? Our Angel has a weird scar/bump on her nose, which The Hubby thinks is nothing, but it's newish. Several of our blogging friends have had their cats into the vet's office for a nose bump too, and both have come back with an 'indeterminate' reading, so I'll wait until her next annual exam, unless something REALLY freaks me out.ReplyDelete
We sure hope it is nothing to worry about, seriously.ReplyDelete

Ha! The way my budget is, guys, they can cut me some slacks, too, if they want. I won’t say ‘no’.Delete
First smile of the day...both of you, Tabbies and you.Delete
We hope it's nothing at all. Paws and fingers crossed!ReplyDelete
As for Raleigh, we hope his check-up goes well. Good luck.
Boy, it's one thing after the other. You've had enough already!! You may be right to think Tucker's problem is just a scrape, but since you'll be taking Raleigh to the vet soon, why not mention it to her. Please let us know how Raleigh's checkup goes.ReplyDelete
I hope it is nothing to worry about and just the result of an altercation with somecat. I hope that Raleigh's check up goes well too.ReplyDelete
Purrs that all is well with Tucker. Good luck at your check-up too Raleigh.ReplyDelete
I hope he is OK. I understand about always being something. With 13 cats, I am always at the vets.ReplyDelete
Cats noses..Goodness..that's a subject ALL onReplyDelete
it's own..and they love sniffing their humans
The main reason a cat smells our face or sniffs
our nose is simply to greet us...If they push their
face into our face and rub their nose against you,
this is also a very positive sign. Not only do they
like you, but they are marking you with their own
scent to let others know you belong to them...!
So..keep yer eye on Tucker..Who 'nose' it's probably
nothing..! Bless him..! :).
I have great hope that this is a minor thing that will stop on it's own. If it isn't angry looking, weeping, or hurtful too him..I have hope.ReplyDelete
Did anyone suggest you take a close-up pic of Tucker's nose and take it with you (cell phone, other) when you take Raleigh in? Or email it to your vet?ReplyDelete
We are also joining in that hopefully it is nothing serious. With multiple felines the vet surely can tax resources. I about fell over when my youngest, Einstein, was groomed. He had been dribbling so I suspected some sort of bladder irritation. The short of it was a lot of investigation, labs and treatment, which I believe were needed, for my little boy. He looks grand and is no longer dribbling so I bear the cost with, if not a smile, knowledge that it is the right thing in the care for our small clowders.ReplyDelete
