Default Hey folks - White spot/sore/something on my cats gums.

Hi folks. My cat is due for a check-up anyways, but I wanted to ask and see if maybe any of y'all had any idea what was going on with his gums.

He yawned yesterday and I noticed on his upper gum, right above his front teeth on his right side, there's a spot a few mm in diameter that's white and slightly puffy compared to the other side. When I touch it he doesn't flinch or react as if it's painful, he just wonders why I have my fingers in his mouth. You kinda have to pull up on his lips and really expose his teeth to see it. He's been drinking water and eating his food, been playing outside and inside - acting completely normal.

Any idea what this could be?

I've done all kinds of searches, and I haven't found a thing that would be helpful.

Nice catch, though! Very observant! Now you have me checking out my girls' mouths every time they yawn. They think I've gone over the edge, I'm afraid.

Good luck at the vet, please let us know what they say.
