My cat is favoring her front right paw and wont put any weight

Resolved Question:

My cat is favoring her front right paw and won't put any weight on it. I touched it in many places and she didn't meow. Could it be sprained or broken and what can we do??

I am sorry your kitty is having trouble.


Does your kitty go outside?


How long has she been limping?


Do you see any areas of swelling on the toes or leg?


Is she still eating?


Let me know and I will try to help....
