hi Sharon and welcome.....I will send you a link with some photos(I can get more if you need to see more let me know).
a cold sore type of sore on the lips is usually due to food intolerances...namely grains in the foods being the biggest culprit. what are you feeding her?
also do you use ceramic or stainless steel bowls and clean well after each feeding? a bacteria build up can cause these too....never use plastic bowls...
heres the link, let me know okay...

honey, that dry food is filled with additives (even worse than the canned). and its full of preservatives too, many things kitties can become sensitive too....not to mention how it causes dehydration which leads to kidney disease, urinary tract problems and a whole list of other health problems....heres some more reading. after you look at the first one I gave you.
I recommend this as necessary reading for all cat parents.....for their health and what you'll save on future Vet bills....read on that link 'feeding your cats, know the basics'
