A. Injuries and abscesses from bites and scratches are both common in kittens. If he is crying and pain and unwilling to walk on the leg he must receive treatment including pain relief and possibly also antibiotics from your vet

A. I would urge you to take him in for some X-rays. A fracture is always a possibility, and especially in a kitten who may have a growth plate that is affected. Your veterinarian can also give you medication to help manage his pain and inflammation
