Hi,
Yesterday I found a nickle sized lump on the tip of my cat's ear, her name is Goblynn and she is almost 10 years old. She has always been very healthy other than a bit over weight. I also have a 7 month old kitten and think that maybe the kitten bite her. Today the lump is bigger and is going towards her inner ear, the tip of the ear is now bent. Does anyone have any ideas of what this could be?

Aural Hematoma. These can be painful, your vet can fix this.

It could also be an abcess, if the kitten did bite her. In either case, you must take her to the vet.
