Swollen cheek

My cat has a puffy cheek on one side. There's no visible injury/infection and she's not in pain that I can tell (happily eating, not meowing). Going to try get her in at the vets tomorrow but any ideas what it might be?

You really need the vet to examine your cat but likely culprits are dental problems or mouse bite - have seen this a couple of times over the years, they go to catch a mouse who fights back!

When my cat gets this it's usually an abcess from an infected bite. I'd assumed she was scrapping with another cat - intrigued if it could also be a mouse!

Yes it's a cat bite abscess

Thank you, they managed to drain it and gave her some injections, she seems much better today
