A. A cat bite abscess is the most likely cause and most times you will not see the wound unless the leg is fully clipped down. This will need both pain relief and antibiotics to be administered by your vet. Arrange an appointment as soon as possible to assess injury and prescribe medication as appropriate before the infection spreads any deeper as they can become very sick from this
