• She has a lump on her lower back practically on her spine. It hasn’t affected her mood or behavior the last week. Should I take her in or maybe it will go away? She is an indoor cat.

    Hi Danielle,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. A lump like you are describing can be caused by many different things including infection, an injury, or even a mass. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the lump after they have examined her. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause of the lump.
