I've been reading post about lumps in kittens necks.. I fostered kittens last month for my son until they were old enough to put up for adoption. They were all under a pound. Two of them had what looked like bite marks on there necks..we assumed it was from the mom carrying them around. as the days went on these marks got bigger, so I began to clean them and put ointment on them...thy got even bigger. I took them to my vet and i could not beleive my eyes!! The vet said the word maggot and i went nuts. A maggot in the kittens necks..omg...i was horrified. Well they are called warbles and let me tell you it is the most disgusting thing i have ever seen. He took them out and it healed. The kittens are in new homes, but I wanted to share this tale.
