Barn kitty hurt by raccoon

We accidentally left the cat food outside overnight and our youngest barn kitty was hurt by a raccoon.  It was a baby raccoon that came to the porch at 5:30am, and ate up the cat food, fighting off our cats.

At first the poor kitty's leg was swollen and we saw no signs of any marks, but after keeping him in the garage for 2 days, we located it.  Afraid to give him any aspirin, because too much can poison him, we are treating the cut, and keeping him nearby us.  We take him outside for sunshine and fresh air, and he stays right by the door.

We are praying he recovers, and that we never forget to bring the cat food inside at night.
