Default Why is my cat's cheek swollen?

My cat has a swollen right cheek. She has had it for 2 days. If I touch the swelling on my cat's face, it seems to be hard. Indoor/Outdoor cat. What do I do?

Please take your cat to the vet immediately. She is undoubtedly in a lot of pain and whatever is wrong is only going to get worse until she gets medical treatment.

The vet would be your best bet - sounds like maybe he has a problem with a tooth/teeth. If he is eating/drinking he should be fine until Monday, but if his symptoms change, ie fever, or anything else that makes you nervous, I would take him sooner.

Facial swelling due to infection often has an associated wound. The swelling is often warm and painful. Take your cat to your veterinarian.
