Q. My cat came inside and has a lump on his chest. It feels like a bone or a break but he acts no different. He doesn't seem to have pain

A. Monitor it for a couple of hours, if it doesn't improve or you start to notice any other symptoms such as breathing problems, pain etc then you should see your vet. It could be a reaction to an insect bite or sting which may start to decrease over the next couple of hours.
