My sis-in-law has a beautiful, very loving Abyssinian male around 14 yrs of age, He went up a palm tree about 6 weeks ago, they dang near had to pull him out, his mouth was cut on the side and it was bleeding, sence then he got this big lump beside his nose and under his eye, she has had him to the vet 5 times, they were giving him some shots to reduce swelling, and antibotics. I was there on Monday and I started crying when I saw him he is the sweetest kitty, She said the vet told her she thought it was a tumor on the roof of his mouth, I told her I didn't think it would swell that fast and get that hard if it were a tumor. I told her maybe by pulling him off that palm tree and those are sharp the whole tree, maybe something got shoved up in there, and I think you need to tell her that you want an x ray, I think she should have done that first, I can't beleive she didn't do that, has anyone had a cat with a tumor on the roof of its mouth? I had one with one on the floor of its mouth that I had to have put to sleep, Plus when he sneezes blood comes out his nose, I think an x ray is the first thing that should have been done.
