    joey has seriously hurt his foot :(

    Earlier this evening we noticed that our cat joey had seriously hurt his toe. It looks like one of his toes has been pulled back and is on top of the rest of his toes! His claw is sticking out and his foot is very swollen. He can't walk properly and hes limping. Hes in obvious pain and he cant get comfy. I cried earlier seeing him like this. The vets will be phoned straight away tomorrow morning to see if they can fit him in asap. I know im not that active on here but please keep my precious boy in your thoughts thank you

    Poor Joey - that has got to be uncomfortable. My RB kitty August once stepped on a staple; the vet removed it from his toe and had me soak his paw in warm water with epsom salts 2 -3 times a day for a few minutes to clean and sooth the wound; also to help with any potential infection. The epsom salts were not popular with my boy however he did tolerate the soakings and his paw was better within days.

    Morning can't come soon enough I'm sure ... hope Joey gets feeling better soon.

    Poor Joey. I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm sure that your vet will be able to see him since it sounds like an emergency type of situation. Prayers and positive thoughts are being sent his way.

    A few years ago, I talked to the vet about what to do if something happened over a weekend and my cat was in pain. He suggested a few painkillers to have handy, in case they were needed.

    Hope Joey will get his paw sorted out and feel better soon!
