Like I mentioned before, I had the mobile vet look at her and he told me what he thought but was very unconcerned. As I have learned through this situation, in that area cats, especially barn cats are seen as disposable and are not give the best of care. When I visit, I always bring food for her and clean the foot off but it's a bit hopeless because dairy barns are not the cleanest places. Thanks for the suggestions and I will look into the vet clinics.
Do you have a Humane Society in your city , or maybe there are some animals lovers at a church or temple they would be willing to help the poor cat. The paw look really bad and like others said the cat needs to be taken to a vet before an infection set in the whole leg.
