My recently adopted 5 month old kitten has a bit of crusty bloody on her front paw pad (the dangly 'heel' pad).
I've had a go at trying to get a look at it but crazy kitteh is less than eager to stay still. I can't see an actual cut or any foreign bodies in the area and she isn't limping or even licking it to try and clean it. The only reason I noticed is because she has white legs so i noticed the difference in colour.
I was about to make up a salt water solution and give it a wipe / soak to clean off the blood from the fur around it in the hope i can see more. Should I be taking her to the vet or will a little home cleaning fix it up? I do have an older cat who got in a fight a while back and came home with a rather icky looking hole under his chin, salt water 3 times a day to keep it clean had it heal up in 3 days. Is the fact that she's only a kitten going to change her ability to heal?
Sorry, so many questions, just want to make sure I'm using the best remedy.
