post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am fostering lil kittens they are about 9 weeks old now!
One of the is limping on her front foot. I noticed it late night i keep her apart from the others over night but she is still limping i think they played to rough.
What can i do like massaging it or should i take her to the vet?
It is not broken and she is not crying when i touch it she just dont want to use it!
HELP!!!!!!!
Thank ya so much!

I would not massage it. I would take her to the vet. She could have stepped on something or whatever is making her hurt could worsen with a massage. Definitely take her to the vet.

I would have the vet look at it as well.

Just a week ago, my friend adopted two kittens. When I met them, I noticed that one kitten had a swollen hind leg, and he meowed whenever the leg was handled the wrong way. When I told him about it, he made an appointment with the vet, and it was too late when he went, because the kittens had been playing very rough, and apparently, his swollen leg got bitten twice by the other kitten. The vet suggested that the leg be amputated because the muscles seemed dead. The kitty is now 3-legged.
