Default Tick on cat

Hi everyone - after work tonight my husband noticed a black bump on our cat's neck. We were concerned so I called and made a vet appointment for tomorrow. A few hours later I looked in her food bowl and saw the black bump, which turned out to be a very engorged tick. I called our vet back and she said to clean it and that the area may become swollen but that was it.

Is this anything to be concerned about? She's acting normal and fine. It did look like a deer tick but from what I've seen Lyme disease is uncommon in cats. Our cat is an indoor cat but we do take her out for about 10 mins at a time every couple days when the weather is nice

You did everything right. Keep an eye on her and if you notice any change in appetite, or littler box habits or energy level, get her to the vet for some blood work.
