  • It could be matted fur, or tumors. I would get her to a Vet ASAP..
  • If they are of opposite sexes and even if they aren't the biting and bumps could be due to dominance. The overpowering of another animal is part of a natural instinct in most animals. If they are of opposite sex then it could be from mounting and mating. As long as the bumps are not inflammed or bleeding they should be fine. If you notice them getting larger or releasing pus take your cat to the vet. There is one other explanation. If your cat has fleas and wears a collar or flea collar it could be a rash due to close proximity to the cat's neck. Make sure you check your cat carefully. Good luck, I hope this helps.
  • If you bath your cat, use warm water and dawn dishwashing liquid.. while she is in the water use a flea comb on her. This will help rid her of any fleas and also loosen up anything that shouldnt be there. Follow this up with some neosporin. If this dont help her please take her to the vet. I did this on my stray cat and now she is fine and healthy.
  • My cat has also recently started getting bumps around her neck. I have found no fleas and she does not wear a collar. The bumps are very small and seem to be under the skin, as there is nothing to see, just small raised patches. Someone mentioned tumours, more info please. Thanks in advance for any help. Incidentally, to treat fleas and ear mites I use a small amount from a clove of garlic and crush it with olive oil. I then comb it through my cat; the moment a flea bites it dies due to the effect of the garlic in the blood stream. If your cat will eat garlic, and I stress in small amounts, that's even better: crush a little in food. An additional bonus is your cat will be healthier for it!
