cat lumps

My cat has quite a large lump on its stomach which seems to be filled with liquid which is a red colour. What could this be and is it harmful to my cat?

This could be an abscess, which could get infected-if it hasn't already.  An abscess would be very likely if your cat is an outdoor cat or you have a multiple cat household.

I'd take kitty to the vet so that he/she can drain it and give him some antibiotics.  In the meantime, you can put warm compresses on him for 5-10 minutes at a time a couple of times a day.
