My 10 year old ex-feral cat has a swollen left front paw. It's been painful for him for several weeks but swelled up about 5 days ago. I got some antibiotic from my vet in liquid form that I've been mixing with his food. I started that on Thursday and everything was fine until this morning. He's not eating. I'm not sure whether he's not eating any food at all. I'm working on making a room secure so I can shut him in with the food (I have 2 other cats and I'm concerned he may be eating their food instead. One of my cats is a crf cat and has continual access to dry Royal Canin prescription food that the other 2 cats eat.) I'm not sure what to do. I'm thinking at this juncture my cat (Jake) needs to be seen by a vet. I don't know how to get him there. He will let me pick him up but trying to get him in a carrier will be close to impossible.
