Do not pass Go, Do not collect $300, Do not ask random people on the internet for advice.  Head STRAIGHT to the vet. Like, right now.  Literally, this second, call the vet and tell them its an emergency, and they will take you in.

Don’t do anything. Just take him to the vet ASAP.

Is there any way you can take him at lunch or even just take a few hours of vacation time? Seriously, I would get him to the vet ASAP.

How long ago did this happen? It sounds badly infected. He needs the vet,ASAP. Can your parents take him in?

Cats are very good at hiding pain/discomfort so when they show it that means things are bad.

leave work or ask your parents to take him in?  I mean, he needed to be at the vet like, yesterday.

@mandypop:  This!

I have worked for a vet and I owned a stable and had to do a lot of first aid/medical care. A bad smell is BAD…REALLY BAD!!! Take your cat to the vet NOW!

Yes definitely hurry to the vet!!! My cat once fought a stray that had gotten into our yard and she got a huge infected cyst in her side that we had to have removed and then she wore a cone and had a surgical tube sticking out of the incision for a week to let it drain. Your cat sounds really sick and you should take him immediately!

Are your cats vaccinated? You need to get them in ASAP!

The minute the wound started getting worse rather than better and he started limping you should have taken him in. You don’t know whar bit/scratched him. There could be toxins from the other animal as well (if it was a snake or lizard). He could have also been infected with something like FIV by a stray cat.

@KatNYC2011:  This!

OP, why did you wait this long?? If it was me I’d be taking some personal or sick time RIGHT NOW and taking my cat to the vet ASAP!! Good luck and please keep us updated. :-

@KatNYC2011:  Exactly. I am worried about FIV mostly, among other things. The fact that it smells bad almost certainly means its infected.
