My 4y/o, indoor cat has an irregular mole-like growth on the bridge of his nose that has grown rapidly to about 1.5 cm.
He is ginger and white and hasn't been outside except for transport. No other cats, just 2 healthy dogs. No new meds, food or environment. It doesn't seem to be causing him any pain when I've palpated it, nor is he scratching or cleaning it profusely. His appetite and thirst haven't changed at all. We have, however, had an issue with him "acting out" in the past month - eating fabric blinds, scractching on furniture he never had an interest in before, jumping up and knocking things over - generally being a naughty kitty whenever he's left alone, which isn't normal for him. Can't get in to the vet for a few days.

Whenever there is a sudden change in behavior, Catsters always recommend at least a call to the vet's. The mole and the acting out may not be related, but he may be trying to get your attention to tell you that even though he looks OK, he doesn't feel well. He may be protesting being left alone, too. This is something that, when you take him in to be examined for the mole, ask your vet about his being naughty. Keep him entertained with lots of playtimes and cuddles.
