Cat Red Skin Bubble

Cats tend to get little nicks on them as a way of life - especially if you are in a multiple cat household or let your cats outside. One of the results can be a red skin bubble, or a Pyogenic granuloma. You can see in the below photo that this one on our cat Juliet is fairly small, in scale with the fingers.

These tend to appear at a place that was scratched. This makes sense, probably with the skin ruptured the blood vessels "poke through". This isn't very serious generally, but since there are a lot of blood vessels in that bubble if it gets squished or popped there can now be a lot of blood coming out of the wound.

Small ones heal on their own, but larger ones might need a vet to take care of them. I am not a doctor, so it's really best to have a vet check out any odd issues with your cat to confirm!
