I think Naruto's toe is swollen

first some backround, i found out today that Naruto was slightly limping. i picked him up and saw that his hind feet had one BIG RED WART looking THING where one of Naruto's nail/toe should be, it looked very very swollen, and painfull . my parents said maybe because he climbed on the mesh?( i dont really know what it's called but it's when you open your door or window and this net looking thing is there ) i have seen him climb it alot ( i try not to let him climb it ) and when he gets to the top he just falls down, i think his toe nail came off or something. so the question is, what can i do to help this problem he has?

I think you mean he's climbing the screen? Is he a kitten? Mine did that when they were little although I tried to discourage it. They did grow out of it but in the meantime I'd make sure they are really secure.
Sounds like he probably has an abcess. If so, it can be quite serious if it's not treated so I'd bring him into the vet right away. The longer it's let go the worse (and more expensive) it can get.
Good luck and let us know how he's doing.
