Gosh, that is something that I have never seen before.
Personally, when in doubt call the vet out.
(Not virtually, just take kitty there & I am sure they will be able to
help you.)
If you do find out, please do let us know what it was if you would,
please? It would be very interesting to know. Thanks in advance,
Best of luck,
Sheelagh >"o"<
PS: Gorgeous kitty by the way :o)

almost appears as a tumor has the vet ruled that out and also have you
gone and seen another vet or did the vet pick up the phone and call as
associate

Do you live near a university with a college of veterinary medicine? If so,
I would ask for a reference to see one of their veterinarians. (I did that
with Duffy at Texas A&M University and was pleasantly surprised to find that
the feline ophthalmologist was very reasonable in cost.) If that is not
possible, ask for a reference to another veterinarian. Since you say that
your vets have come across anything like this, your primary vet may be
willing to contact others so he or she can make an appropriate reference.

Has a biopsy been made of any of the growths? Is your vet sure they are
warts?

oh, that poor thing. Is it just one kitten who has that, or do several?

You definitely need to get a second opinion, as others have suggested. Let
us know what it turns out to be, will you please?

Hi,

Here is a site with an extensive list of feline skin lesions and possible
diagnoses:
http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?cls=1&cat=1338&articleid=204. It
might help you narrow things down since you can see and feel the lesions and
their characteristics. I would urge you to seek out a veterinary
dermatologist or a general vet who specializes in skin diseases to rule out
malignancy or the possibility that the lumps grow and become obstructive A
dermatologist would likely either take a skin scraping or do a biopsy/ies of
the lesions. Another option would be to have your kitty seen at a university
veterinary clinic as you would then have access to a team of vets. Either way,
please have your kitty seen by a specialist so that you can prevent potential
future problems.

I hope this helps.

Good luck and please keep us posted.

Thanks for the help have put a new photo up taken a week after first
The vet is treating it as ring worm so I am praying that it has not got to
any of the kittens we have re homed so far and that my own cats do
not get it !!

I am about 4hr car travel from any college of veterinary medicine
so will hope vet is right but if does not start to get better soon will have
to try
a vets about an hour away

I hope this year is not going to be as bad as last , as almost all of the
kittens rescued last had eye infections and if we have one is sick its
not safe to rehome any until they are all cleared by vets , which with
ring worm can be up to 6-8 weeks will post as have news

This kittens is from a litter of four two are with me and two are with a
fosterer about 30 miles away
she has just called me to tell me that one of her two has the now go the same
warts !
that means that we have now where to put any new kittens, Looks like this
year is going to be as
much fun as last and just as costly ,

I do wish people would get there pets done instead of dumping in fields or
the side of roads as the % of cats trapped is about 10% feral cats and the
rest are house moggies dumped and very scared and as it is very hard to home
kittens around here it takes a long time to home to cats and it has to be
done outside the The Cat Action Trust as the Charity is not set up to deal
with pets

a little background I starting helping out the local cat rescue (The Cat
Action Trust ) about 10 years ago it deals with feral cats by trapping
spaying and putting back making sure that they are fed and checked by vets
when needed and the kittens are homed , about 2 years ago Enid Evans the lady
who started the branch on Anglesey passed away and it has been hard to keep
it going with out her but we keep going for the cats and in her memory
