Anyone familiar with cat's paw bleeding?

My 8 month old cat Rascal is 95% an indoor cat.  2 nights ago he slept in my closet, when he jumped out he left a pawprint of blood everywhere he went for at least 1/2 hour or more.  I thought he must have been cut with something sharp between his "toes".  Today I got my mom  to hold him down while I examined his right rear paw since it has not healed like I would have expected.  I thought I saw a tick and removed it with tweezers, but after I looked at what I removed it looked more like dried blood.  Probably made it worse and more bleeding.  The other inner toe looks similar, like it is caked with dried blood.  Or perhaps it could be something else?  Is there anything I can do for the cat's paw before taking him to a vet because I am dead broke.  It looks like a giant cut between two toes that is now covered with what looks like dried blood.  He does not seem to be in pain unless he licks that foot, or if we try to look at that foot.  I wish I could somehow clean it so I can really see what is going on in there.

geez other than an injury, its hard to tell what could be going on there....the only thing I can suggest is try changing his brand/type of litter...some cats develop an allergy or sensitivity to some brands or types of litter..and this can cause severe itching on their paw/pad area...so perhaps with the itchinessI  he is over grooming between his toes??
I sure hope that helps and would be easy to remedy. if he uses perfumed litter go to non-perfumed.
try a paper pellet or crystals rather than clay. the pet stores have many alternatives and some more natural than others....I would advise not to try the corn or pine ones as they seem to be heavily scented..
