Message from the Woman
Estorbo is OK.
I cleaned his bloody claw up and disinfected it once he had calmed down last night and he didn't utter a peep. Good cat. I always trim his nails with him upside down in my lap and for some reason this very bitey cat does not mind that at all. I don't think his toe is broken, but his claw must have been wrenched, somehow. He has no other injures that we can see or feel. He has eaten, rested, slept, purred, stolen some butter and early this morning wanted to go out again to the roof. Needless to say, we did not let him.
His very upsetting panting was stress-related. Not sure if he had run very fast, or been frightened, or chased, but it stopped after he was calm and he cooled off. So the scary cat-panting diagnoses - hopefully - do not apply. I read them, too, last night.
Right now he is on the terrace on his kikoi, under the table, sheltered from some light, misty rain and dozing. He just bit me when I stroked him, so I think everything is back to normal!
For the foreseeable future Estorbo is banned from the roof unless we are up there, too.
