My cat was born with a larger chin which we lead to belive made her look uniquely like a Lioness. As she grew her bottom teeth formed a over-bite. Recently though, her chin has "erupted", she has developed scabs around her neck and chin that secret pussy fluid. The scabds are to the skin and no hair remains. We took her to a Vetrenarian and apparently it is normal and there isn't much we can do but avoid contact with her. It's really sad that my cat has to indure this and I hope she survives it hmm.gif.

OMG! crying.gif will it ever recover? sad.gif

the human race is at an end and and my soul grows weary. the one thing that could revive it is almost gone and is in no condition to heal me. yet i shall not despair for the light of hope shines even in the greatest darkness. i shall continue to hope.... hope for the days of green and ever lasting love of all things. for those whom think them selfs better shall realize they are not all that is. nor are they in any way better for all life is equal.

I agree that is not normal, I would go to another vet.  Maybe one who specializes in cats.  Looks like the chin clans are oversecreting. My cat book relates to it diet but that looks bad.  How can you keep that clean if you don't touch her? I don't think your vet knows what he is talking about.

Poor kitty. sad.gif
Please tell us how she make out.

I apologize for the missconception before. My definition of "normal" wasn't meant to be missinterpreted to be average for a cat. After a short talk with my mother she says she can't remember exactly what the disorder is, but it is common among cats with her unique chin (see first post for info). Apparently, we can't do much but wait and pray it gets better. But, if it doesn't, then we'll have to put her down. We've had her for about five years now and we adopted her from the local humane society. She came from a man who was arrested for animal neglect. My mom claims that she weighed alot less then a normal cat of her size should. hmm.gif

I tried to scan my cat book for you, but it didn't come out legible.  You might be able to get it library it is called "The New Natural Cat" by Anitra Frazier.
She has a section about chin glands.  She suggests changing the diet and making your own cat food. It is worth a try.  I almost lost my cat to a Bobcat this week.  I don't know what I would have done. I am a widower and shes is all company I got.

Yeah, we've been giving her a mixture of her difirent cat foods to help her get better, we've also been mixing in water to make it easier to chew. I'm sorry to hear that Darkwind, nobody deserves that. I hope your cat recovers. If not, then get a gun and kill the bobcat. happy.gif

You miss understood, the bobcat didn't get a hold of her but it was close.  If I hadn't got to the door in time she'd been bobcat dinner.  It was a close call that was for sure.
Even if the bobcat had got her I couldn't shoot him. He is doing what he must to survive.  All round my mobile home park they have destroyed all the forest, built golf courses and million dollar homes on postage stamp lots.   We have taken the bobcat's home away form him. Now he is living in an unnatural situation.  We have lots of rabbits and ducks in our lake, so he is naturally attracted to that.  A cat is just a little bigger meal to him.  I worry about him.  He has little fear of humans which makes him very dangerous, if someone gets hurt his life is forfeit.  It is a sad situation for him.  To live he must hunt and have game to hunt.  We have built our homes where he must hunt.  He has no choice but to hunt in my yard.  So I must be more responsible of my cat by keeping her in house and walking her on a leash.  The bobcat is beautiful. The next time I see him I am hoping to get a picture of him. If I do Iíll post it.
