I am terrified. I just noticed a hard lump on the left side of my cat's jaw. He is normal otherwise, eating and very active. But I had a dog with Lymphoma, it started just like this, and he died. So naturally I am worried. But I read on a website that cats don't get it in their necks like dogs do, only the chest or intestines. Is this true? Have any of you had a cat with the condition before? Is there anything else it might be? He had been in a fight, so was thinking it may be an abcess, but I don't see a wound. I know you're going to say 'take him to the vet now' but I cannot get into the vet until after New Year's, they're booked, and I have no money for the emergency vet. (no, they don't 'work with you' I have tried many times) Is there any advice you can offer, or story you can tell, that may help me until Tuesday? But even with a vet, if the news is bad, I don't think there's any hope. There wasn't for my dog no matterwhat they did. I would feel so much better if someone could give me some hope. I am nervous and about to cry. Thank you.
