Well, first of all, I seriously doubt that your dad is just being mean.  He most likely has financial issues he is concerned with, and that makes going to the vet not a priority.  If you want to try to do some 'home healing' for your kitten, first see if the cat will let you gently touch the part that is hurting: if he fights you at all, do not try to do any more touching.  The idea of touching the hurt part is to see if there may be a wound (you could put a bit of neosporin on it daily), or a splinter (these will work their way out on their own), or a bump (nothing you can do at home for that), or if something is obviously broken (a broken bone will heal, maybe not perfectly, in about 6 weeks, and it would help that healing if you kept the cat as inactive as possible).  Keep in mind that cats are pretty self-sufficient, even when wounded.  But sometimes, if the wound is terrible, or the cat is very young or sick, it might be fatal.  I hope your kitten is okay.  Feel free to msg me if you want to - Blu
