6 week old kitten fell off the bed and hurt its back left leg. He can’t walk on it. He cries when it gets bumped. He can pull the leg against his body and lays on it, but when he stretched his leg out the top of his foot was facing out instead of forward. I’m worried he may have broken or dislocated something. How can I tell and what do I do? And what can we give him for pain?

Please go to the vet asap for an X-ray. They may be able to splint it to help it heal. Kittens heal fast and almost every fracture and dislocation will heal if you get there quickly. Also kittens are dare devils so try to keep them in a large crate or carrier for a few more weeks.
