About the Moment Footage the owner’s cat opens the case after her pet’s cracked lip went viral.
Adoptable feline can be seen missing the upper lip shear shared on November 20 by Julia Bodnar, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who uses the handle @annoying.local.julz. More than 3.3 million people have seen the video.
After a trip to the vet, Julia was told that her cat was suffering from “rodent ulcers” – a condition that has nothing to do with mice or rats.
What are the gnawing sores?
According to Spruce Pets, the damaged tissue condition causes sores to develop on the cat’s lips, most often the upper lip.
These sores are three types of inflammatory skin problems in cats called Eosinophilic Granuloma Complex (EGC), according to a vet-recognized and proven site plan.
There is a fallacy behind the name, as some say “sore from the bite of a mouse or muscle.”
Causes and symptoms
Spruce Pets says the symptoms are much more serious than they feel for cats.
- Ulcers well defined, with raised edges, and ulcerated with water
- The tissue around the sores
- Ulcers appear on one or both lips (often the upper lip)
- The Northmen are not in pain
There are many reasons why ulcers appear, but veterinary researchers “don’t have one specific cause,” according to the site. It is unclear how the cat contracted the disease while watching it, but it may have been for one of these reasons.
- Food allergies
- Hypersensitive reaction to ectoparasites such as fleas, ticks, or mosquitoes
- Bacterial or fungal infections
- Autoimmune disorders
- Feline leukemia
A slideshow of pictures on Julia’s TikTok shows the gap in her cat’s top lip getting smaller and smaller after a trip to the vet.
The woman added this text: “It started to heal a little love went a long way.”
While the cuddles and kisses helped the most with this greetings to the catthey did not care for the disease. However, this most likely involves prescribing antibiotics or anti-fungal medication as well as a short course of anti-inflammatory steroids, according to Spruce Pets.
More than 2,700 people commented on the round, and the top comment received more than 21,000 likes.

One TikToker raised red flags saying: “What he didn’t know to help with were these rodent sores.”
Another person praised Julia, saying: “She saved the lil girl’s life. What a sweet baby.”
