Need Help Bumps on Cats Skin
Hello,
I need help, My oldest and dearest cat Tommy (13 years old) about 7 or 8 months ago developed this lump on his back on the side.  It ended up opening up and I kept it clean and treated and it healed with in a week or so.  I didnt really think much of it until it appeared again a few weeks ago.  
The thing is this time along with the one large "bump" with in a few days he had developed at least 10 more small bumps on his skin.  They dont bother him and they appear to be cyst like.  I cannot tell if they are going down or not.  I took him to the vet and i have him on amoxicillin but now he is throwing up, he is still eating however and drinking.  He is an indoor cat and i know that they are not from fights or anything.  

He has been healthy his whole life, but did have a tooth removed last year.

Has anyone else expierenced this with their cats?  What did you do?  And if he lives past this, any ideas for the future?

has the Vet ruled out VAS (vaccine associated sarcoma)???
they sound like tumors to me....hope I am wrong,  please give more information.
its the amoxicillin thats causing him to vomit. why did the Vet give him that? are these bumps infected? if they aren't the antibiotic is a waste...

(((hugs))) to kitty.

Snickers has these small bumps on his skin too.  The vet checked them and said they were just fatty tumors.  When you lift up on his skin the little bumps(i dont like the word tumor) come with the skin.  Did that make sense?!!

I'm sure your vet is taking good care of our Snickers. ♥

No those dont open up so i have no clue what that is, i was just stating that Snickers has bumps on him and was hoping the other bumps on her kitty were the same ones he has.  

Jade, my vet thinks Snickers is the bomb.  He cant believe what a big boy he is.  He always comments on how big his teeth and head is, not to mention the rest of him.  He might be a bit taller than the beagle!!!!

It is not because of vaccines.  
I am worried about taking him back to the vet because of the stress of moving him and what not on him.  
He has stopped throwing up which is good.  But the bumps are still there.  I think that my Tommy could be coming to the end of his life as no one seems the know what is causing these problems on his skin.  His spirits do seem to be getting up and I have noticed after being on the amoxicillin for about a week that he is becoming a little more active so maybe i am putting the cart before the horse on this too.  I have another cat Jacob and he does not have this so i know that it is not contageous.  I think that my only option really is just to wait and see if he gets better or not.  
Thank you all for your support.
