    Well both of them do.... its also in the same location, moves around easily on both...
    I have no idea what it is... doesn't bother them if you touch it.
    I'm really worried.... They weren't there a few days ago!

    it could be a cyst. Take your cat to the vet and find out for sure. It could also be a begnine tumor.

    This is gonna sound really odd, and a few will probably laugh knowing my cat's history, but did he by any chance just get a steroid shot?

    That and if they recently had booster shots. They cause lumps.
    Is it a tiny bump? like really really little? as if they are the identity chips?

    Its probably just a swollen lymph node. My cats are swollen on the hind legs. If they are swollen he may be trying to fight an infection or somethnig. Keep an eye on them . Call the vet if you overly worried. They may give him some clavamox to help if there is an infection. How old is your kitty? Edgar is 6 and his swoll up from having open sores on his feets.

    Good Luck--keep us updated!

    It could be a number of things. It could be the site where they were vaccinated, swollen lymphnode depending on where the lump is, or a place that they got some other injection from. Either way, they need to be seen by a vet to determine what it could be.
