Good evening, thanks for your question.

It's actually not uncommon for cats to jump on the stove (and, unfortunately, manny of them don't learn their lesson and go on to make the same mistake again). If he's not lost any ability to walk, this is an excellent sign that he may not need any further care. If he begins to favor the limp or lick the pad incessantly, you'll want to take him to your vet to have the foot not only examined put potentially bandaged so that he can walk. I wouldn't go this far unless he actually starts to have problems with the injury, as many cats heal just fine after a burn of this variety. Hopefully he won't be repeating this anytime soon.

If my answer has helped you, please take the time to leave positive feedback. This is how experts are compensated for their time with each customer. If questions remain, reply and I will help you further.
