I came home from spending the night at a friends, and went to go feed the boys, when I saw that Jack's left back paw was HUGE swollen, super purple, and he couldn't walk on it. He seemed ok otherwise. I thought it was broken.

I started frantically calling people that I knew with cars and had one of them drive me up to my small pet vet. They took x-rays, and nothing's broken, there's a big abrasion and it looks like he got caught on something (either the ladder or the platform in his FN) and it damaged a lot of nerves and messed up the bloodflow. So now he has a wrap to help with the swelling, and antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. Bought a small cage and some toys and stuff for him to hang out in till he's all better.

As luck would have it, I called out sick (I'm ill from anxiety from the major oral surgery I'm having tomorrow) so I was home to deal with this. I haven't had anything like this happen before, so I definately flipped, heh.
