    ok so i have owned my fluff for about 1month and half now she is amazing with kids and follows me from room to room being in the bath don't matter she will still follow and sit and cry at the door haha :)
    the breeder i brought her from didnt get her leukemia jab done so i phoned the vets and paid to have this done 3 weeks later she as a lump feels like a knot she may have had this for ages i only noticed this yesterday!! as she as grown it could have moved to a space i can feel it, it moves!! its at the back of her neck now just on her shoulder could this be a reaction from the jab? the vets said it isn't! her second jab is on the 30th but im worried sick!! she is happy running around like crazy striped my xmas tree :) eating well,all seems ok the lump isnt bothering her its only bothering me i have appointment for her on 30th to be seen also the vets said if it isnt bothering her to wait untill the 30th ,, as anyone else ever had this problem! i always think the worst of things cause i worry!!

    I think it would be a reaction from the jab. I can only say to take her to the vet, as you are already doing but try not to worry too much if it isn't causing her trouble yet.

    One of mine had a reaction like that to one of their jabs, I was advised by the vet nurse to massaged it and it would go away.

    Welcome the the world of cat slavery and worry:D

    I hope that helps.

    Pixie got a lump in response to her jab, it was quite big as she was so tiny then!! It will go down in a week or 2, but you could always ask the vet to check it. They can move around a bit though :)

    Both my cats regularly have lumps after boosters, so does my sister's cats. I would think it's quite likely the cause, but best to ask at the vets when you go back.
