after missing for a day my outside/inside kitten of 4 months came home with an extreamly left swollen throught she has problems drinking and she wont eat she also walks funny and lays in one place for hours on end she seems to be getting better, the swelling has gone down but there is a small (to me) hard bump on the other side with a scab my dad doesn't like cats so he wont pay for her to go to a vet. i love my pets and she is the best pet i don't want to lose her can you tell me what has happened and how i can help? please!
It sounds like your kitten has an abscess probably from a cat fight. A vet should look at your kitten so a more accurate diagnosis can be made. If it is an abscess it needs to be lanced. Good luck, vetcare
