Now that things have settled down a bit with Tiger I can focus on Paddington's strange 'spot'. I noticed it a few weeks ago and it looks like a flat mole. It's dark brown and isn't raised at all. I can't be sure if it was there all along (in the few months we've had him). Maybe it became more noticable when the cats started scratching their ears and chewing their paws. During this time, his hair above his eyes got thinned out a bit with all the scratching which maybe made it more visible?!?
I treated everybody with Revolution last month and thankfully all the itching and chewing stopped so I think they were dealing with a mite problem. Anyway, I know the best thing to do is to take him to the vet but we're so broke right now. I'll be able to take him in a few weeks but for now I thought I'd ask if anyone has seen such a spot on their own cats? I'm hoping it's just an age spot but I'm worried it's something serious.
