Tiny is extending a high five to say thanks for all your lovely little well-wishes and good advice. Luckily his paw was back to normal size the following morning - big sigh of relief! Tiny is a feral cat at heart so even though we've come a very long way - lots of sweet strokes - he does not like confinement and I simply wouldn't be able to examine his paw. It's a major patience exercise interacting with a feral and as some of you will know, you will simply have to persist if you hope to one day interact with the cat. But the reward is so great - to feel that such a furry little bundle one day come and show you its trust - woo hoo!! It's totally worth it.
