I am sorry Cheyanne is having trouble with her tongue.
You say its possible she pierced it with her claws.
Even though you cannot see an actual wound I want you to swab her tongue with honey.
. It is a remarkable healing agent:
As the swelling goes down which will be quickly offer her baby food with no onion or garlic or pate canned cat food.
Remove all dry food and any wet with chunks, pieces or shreds.
Feed only smooth pate canned food or baby food.
Please let me know how she is doing. Just reply here or if you prefer, we can speak on the phone.
Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback, as that is the only way I receive recognition from the site for my assistance. Thank you!
