My "little" guy's got bloody paws

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I doubt anyone remembers me since its been a lot of months since I posted and I never posted very often before.

Last night, one of my cats got out of my apartment. He was out most of the day, thankfully a nice little boy found him somewhere and got me. So he's home safe and sound.

I was taking inventory, he's filthy dirty and really stressed out. I had him in my lap for a little while just stroking him and telling him everything is ok. He hopped down after a little while, and I noticed i had two little bloody paw prints on my my lap. I checked around a little bit, and found a few more little bloody paw prints.

I tried to check out his paws, his rear two paws are a little bloody. Not tremendously so, but enough that I got kind of concerned. I tried to inspect the paws, but he got a little upset.

He seems to walk around fine, I can't detect any limp or anything. But I am quite the concerned Daddy.

Its the weekend, and its late (9pm). I'm not sure if there's even any 24 hour vets around here to have him checked out at. I thought this was probably the best place to come and ask.

Hmm, does he seem to be injured? Does he have his claws all intact, or some of them hanging off and or missing? Bloody paws can indicate a run in with either a car, a motorbike, bicycle or skateboard. I would put him in a warm tub with some hydrogen peroxide in the water, not much water, just enough to get his feet wet. Because he was outside, he needs to be seen by a vet just to be safe, but unless he is gushing blood, the vet can wait till Monday. Is he eating and drinking okay?

I got to looking at Tater and he had a couple of other nasty looking wounds. Considering how dirty he was, I went ahead and found an emergency vet. The doctors think he got up under a car or something, he has a burn on his tummy from what looks like a belt. And he had a scratch on his front "thigh". He even had a nice big wound from his little sister on his poor little melon.

They shaved him up pretty good and cleaned his wounds. He should be allright

Poor guy

Sounds like he had a horrid adventure! I am glad that he will be OK.
