The kitties were playing and one of them hurt his paw, looks swollen and the nail wont push out. I'm hoping this doesn't merit yet another vet visit?! He seems fine bet is limping a bit.

My cat had the same thing happen today, except there is no obvious sign of a wound on her paw. I immediately took her to the vet and I'm glad I did because it turns out she also had a fever. Even though our situations are a bit different, I wouldn't wait longer than tomorrow if the paw is still swollen since you don't want an infection to start. Wishing your kitty a quick recovery!
Thank I decided no chances...I took him and he did have a fever. They drained his foot and cut a slit so more fluid could drain. My vet didnt find and puss or infection he said it was just inflammed/swollen. Trouble was a little out of it for a few hours and pooped, and threw up....but after that he felt 1000x's better, walking on it, playing, eating. I was able to see/push out his nail....looks like it broke while they were playing!
