We rescued a cat and she has a quarter sized sore scab crusty like thing on the back of her neck .. It was very small when we got her, I just thought it was a scab from a bite! Now it’s much worse .. Now I’m worried a little about ring worm. We are trying to get her into the vet tomorrow.

Hello Kia, 

I’m pleased you are taking your cat to the Vet its always best to check these things out. 

Ringworm shows itself by circular bald patches, there is usually no scab just bare skin. I may be wrong but this wound your cat has sounds more like a bite or sting that has become infected. So you are doing the right thing going to the Vet as it may mean antibiotics. Hope all goes well.
