What are the bumps on my cat's neck

Some cats do have a ridge on the back of their neck, which is called a "bull neck". If your cat has a bull neck, it is common for the fur on their neck to grow tight and will often leave a bump that is also called a "bull neck".

What is it?

It is caused by the enlargement of a muscle (bull neck) and is often seen in older cats. If your cat is a male, he may have a more pronounced bulge on the back of his neck than a female cat.

What causes the enlargement of the muscle?

Over time, the muscle will get enlarged, resulting in a bump in the neck. The muscle is sometimes enlarged as a result of a disease process or injury.

Should I worry?

If your cat is having trouble breathing, get them to a vet.

Will this affect my cat's behaviour?

You asked me about pets. Well, I think some people refuse to have pets because it's a great responsibility. Besides, they have to spend time and money on them. Personally, I don't approve of keeping such unusual pets as lizards or different insects. I believe they should live in their natual habitat. As for the most common pets in Russia, I should say that these are cats, dogs, budgies and hamsters. It's easy to look after them. Read more

Mammary glands, which are located in the breast overlying the pectoralis major muscles, are present in both sexes, but usually are functional only in the female. Externally, each breast has a raised nipple, which is surrounded by a circular pigmented area called the areola. The nipples are sensitive to touch, due to the fact that they contain smooth muscle that contracts and causes them to become erect in response to stimulation. Read more

Anything beyond Cat 5e is unnecessary, although if you have Cat6 already then that's fine. Cat 5e supports up to 1Gbps speeds at up to 328ft. What you should be MORE concerned with is the QUALITY of the line you have, not what standard it SAYS it is certified for. It's pretty hard to beat Tripp Lite for quality, but they are also expensive. Read more
