My cat has a swollen face and front paws!!?

i have a birman cat, she’s 5 and she recently was and still is on treatment for kidney stones.
Today, when i came home, i realized her lips were completely swollen and so were her front paws only.
My mom decided to put a carpet which she loves to sit on in the garden a few days ago to dry and i don’t know if it’s coz of tics and insects in her skin. Under her mouth near her neck area she has lumps of black stuff,looks like insects… i’m quite scared because the swelling looks bad, I don’t know wether it’s allergic or infection or just a side affect of her treatment
any suggestions or ideas?

    You need to get this taken care of asap, call the vet that is treating her since he has her medical information already, and she will need to be seen.

    Perhaps you should take your cat to the vet? No one on here can properly diagnose the cat.

    Get your cat back to the vet and have them do blood work on her. She may have a serious infection, which could lead to more severe health problems.

    Definitely take care of that poor sweety. I think she may have ticks, just because of that big black thing to said was near her mouth, but there’s no way we could tell for sure. plus, ticks to cause swelling. If it’s nothing, then you’ll know, but if it’s something, then you’ll be glad you asked the vet!
