So my cat is turning 12 tomorrow (I almost can't believe it). She's been in remarkable health since I found her when she was just a kitten, but a few years back my ex-roommate broke her tail. An abscess formed and she couldn't move it let alone jump onto things like she typically did. The abscess drained after about a month (after being taken to the vet that is), and healed for the rest of the year (the break was pretty bad). You can still feel the break at the base of her tail, but it's not as bad as it used to be. She can move around, jump (I know she can jump because the little shit got into the doughnuts and that needed a good amount of agility), and just do what cats do I guess. But the abscess feels like it is reforming, and there's a lump (it's not the bone as it moves every time I inspect it) that is at the base. She's in no pain, but I am worried. I am taking her to the vet but I can't stop freaking out. Has anybody dealt with abscesses reforming with pets?
