this morning i noticed my cat giving special attention to his paw, which really concerns me given his previous problem with it (http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...ht=swollen+paw). so i look at it and his nonretractable claw is broken off. there was a little bit of blood that he must have licked off, but he's not limping and he doesn't seem to be in unbearable pain, just some discomfort i guess. but has anyone ever heard of this happening before? i don't know if it was dead because of whatever damage the vet did the first time around, or if this is something completely different. i suspect it's because his paw had been injured before though. it looks like the white part at the top of the claw is still intact, it's just the nail that's broken.
