There is an old cat (older than 15 yrs) and he is very skinny but active. Recently he got a very very large growth on both his outter upper leg. It is very hard mass and he is limping from it. It is not my cat and the people whom the cat belongs to don't have the money to take it to the vet right now. The ball is about a softball. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what it could be or what they could do for him. :cry:

It could be just a regular tumor.. Or it could be cancer growth...

I'm sorry to say, but it MUST be removed! Since the kitty is limping, it is obviously uncomfortable and most likely in some sort of pain. The cat MUST be taken to the vet, and try to arrange billing.

Not going to the vet isn't an option, I'm afraid. Not going constitutes animal cruelty which is punishable by fines and jail time.

That sounded really mean and I apologize, but it's true. I'm hoping for the best outcome for this cat and his family.

Annissa, you are absolutely right. I answered this person in a PM but that's about the gist of what I said.

I'm sure that if they make even the smallest effort, they can find a vet who will barter labor, a plate of cookies every week, or some other non-monetary form of compensation for treatment for this cat.

Cheers,
Dr. Jean
