my cat has a puncture wound on his left thigh from an unknown reason, and his fur on and around it has disappeared from him constant licking it. He is an Indoor cat. I dont know what to do besides using peroxide on it but he ends up licking it off. i cant afford to pay a vet to see him either. its been a week now and he's still bleeding from washing it so much. what should i do?
