  • Looks like an infection and absess of some kind. Take it to the vet, if an infection gets into the blood system it can easily kill a cat. it needs antibiotics most likely not just a topical application of some kind.

  • Looks like a ruptured abscess/cyst. My guinea pigs get them. Does it stink? I usually squeeze what I can out and flush it with water. Then I take them to the vet for antibiotics.

  • Anon, ask Iz if this is the same thing that happens to her guinea pigs. I think it might be a ruptured cyst or something like that. Her guinea pigs have a lot of them.

  • It looks like an abscess that burst. I would take her/him to the vet to get some antibiotics.

  • If what I am seeing is what is there, then I would take this cat to the vet as soon as you can. There is a condition of the skin that looks like what I am seeing and your cat will need antibiotics to lick it and you do not want this cat licking this sore and getting inside her. You can wash the area, It does not appear to be bleeding. Even if you use clear water. If you are going to the vet right now do not put on a topical because you want him to see what is going on and not disguise or minimize it. You might be able to call the vet and mail him the picture for advice.

  • Looks like a skin infection. Take the cat to the vet. Banfield pet hospitals in PetSmart stores offer a payment plan (Wellness plan) that lets you have unlimited doctor's visits, a few vaccinations and rabies shots every year for a monthly fee of around $20. You can get a free first exam coupon Keep your cat inside from now on if it was an outdoor cat. Indoor cats stay healthier, which means less expenses for you. You can buy claw covers that glue on to prevent scratching on furniture.
