A bit worried about Tommy... the mole / ingrown cat whisker is bleeding a bit today. Vet said it was a mole and we should keep an eye on it. Just put a bit of antiseptic on it.
Did your cat have something similar?

I've never heard of this, Ana. Poor you and Tommy!

If it's a mole and it's bleeding, that doesn't sound good. Can't the vet remove it?

That's the problem, we don't know if it's a mole or not. Still not looking good.
Probably going to the vet tomorrow.

Noah has a tendency to get occasional blackheads around his mouth. Also knew a friend's cat that had them. Other than that I have no experience. I hope for Tommy it is nothing more than a big zit gone awry or some silly kitty dermatitis.

I can report that Tommy's mole is much better now :)
I started using a tea tree oil solution and seems it helped him. No bleeding anymore and looks like it was not a mole but really some irritation as it is much flatter now.
