Lumps on kittens belly
I have two kittens, Uffie - 8 months and Siouxsie - 5 months.
In the last week I have noticed two lumps on Uffie's tummy that have increased in size quite rapidly.
They are not painful to her and she isn't over licking the area. She hasn't gone off food and is as loving as ever.
The lumps are situated in between her hind legs and are of equal size.
She is yet to be spayed but she does have an appointment with the vet for that to be done.

Does anyone have any idea what it could be? I'm worrying myself sick!

Many Thanks,
Benina

     Lumps can occur due to abscesses or trauma leading to hematoma or seroma formation, which are collections of blood or serum, respectively, under the skin.

Hematomas and seromas are often non-painful.  

Abscesses occasionally wall off and appear to be non-painful, as well. Lumps in this region can be due to hernias. If the lump has always been present this is a strong possibility. Hernias also sometimes occur due to trauma.

. The last possibility is cancer.

Sometimes young cats develop fibrosarcomas and they can occur in this region. These tumors need to be  tested and removed if the vet deems it neccessary.

So let us know what the results are when you find out! If they do turn out to be abscesses, then you'll need to get her treated with antibiotics and then neutered. It's possible Uffie has a chronic problem developing in that region which could be rated to her unfixed status.
