Bumps on cat's neck?
A week or so ago while petting Arty, I felt a little bump in the fur under his neck; it was hard and kindof felt like a little pimple. It felt pretty superficial and didn't bother him, so I didn't think anything of it - figured maybe he'd clawed himself while having a scratch or something. But then the other night, I felt more of these bumps directly on the front of his throat, and tonight it felt like there's a few more on the sides of his neck. Any ideas as to what this could be? I don't think it's feline acne as the cats don't have plastic bowls and it's no where near his chin. We've recently started trying to get our boys on wet food and Arty is taking to it more than the other cat, so I guess it could be an allergy, though he hasn't had any wet food in a few days. I've also started transitioning them to a urinary formula dry food in the last couple of days, but I noticed the first few bumps before introducing the new dry food. The other thing I'm thinking is that it could be clogged pores/dry skin, since these bumps are on a part of his body that he can't clean well. I tried brushing his neck tonight, thinking some small clumps of fur might come out but he wouldn't sit still (our old cat used to get something that felt similar, and once brushed, small clumps of fur attached to a dry 'stem' would come off him). Has anyone else experienced this? I do plan to make him a vet appointment as soon as I can, but thought I'd do some investigating here first.
