Owie! Hurty paw!

Rori writes:

My paw is owie! It started two nights ago when I was covering up the litter box. Mommy and Daddy think I may have hurt it on the wall or the vanity because I scratch there as well as in the box itself. It hurts to step on it, so I'm hopping while holding it up. I heard something about a doctor visit, but I hope not! They said maybe not until Monday. Mommy and Daddy have both been very gently looking at my paw and have pinpointed which of the pads is being bothersome, but they don't see anything the matter. Daddy thinks it feels a little different when he pushed on it a bit, though. I growled and meowed a little when he did that, but I let him after he reassured me that he was trying to help.

Everyone's following me around wherever I go, so last night I lay down in the litter box in the bathroom to avoid them! When Mommy saw me and asked me what I was doing, I looked up at her, meowed, and jumped out, hobbling out to the kitchen for a bite to eat. I know they're all watching out for me like I watch out for them, and I'm glad of it, but it gets overwhelming sometimes. But that's what comes with the job of "big kitty" of the household!

Owie is right!
I (Bugsy) hurt my paw like a month ago too... I got irritated with some poop stuck on my claw, and decided that removing the whole claw would be the best idea, that way I would solve the problem once and for all!
God, was I ever wrong!
Meowmy cleaned my paw very well, put some neosporin on it, and made a pretty cool (NOT), but the vet told her to not cover it up the next time...
All because she had ran out of her Colloidal Silver... That stuff is the best! Once meowmy got that, then she just put some in it twice a day after cleaning, and I got as good as new!
I hope you get as good as new real soon too! Hurting paws are definitely no fun!
Hugs!
