Good Afternoon and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
This lameness in Baby's paw could be due to a neurologic issue from arthritis, considering his age. This is common in older cats and not necessarily due to a stroke. If he is acting normal aside form this, this may be the case and your vet can prescribe an anti inflammatory medication to help Baby past this. Most likley your vet will take xrays and check to see if this is due to arthritis but it is important to also check his blood work because of baby's advanced age to be sure there is not other problems causing this. I wish I could give you a home remedy for this but without the tests, it is hard to know what may be causing Baby's distress.Does that make sense to you?
