Cats/cat problem

Question
I have an 8 year old cat and I just recently found a white bump on her rectum. It sort of looked like a pimple but it began to leak a white puss. What could this mean?

Answer
Hi
sounds like an abcess it may have been caused by being scratched there in some way. There are other causes of limps on the rear end and the only real way to find out what it is is to get it looked at by a vet.

best wishes
Kate
