My cat got in a pretty bad fight and got bitten pretty ugly.

He licks his wounds too much and it worries me.

His tail also twitches strangely.

Is it time for vet?

Definitely time for a vet.

the better question is: is it safe to let my cat outdoors unsupervised where he might get into fights requiring subsequent visits to the vet?

unless you're really attached to the idea of your cat dying young, the answer is obviously "no".

and yes, go to the vet you retard.

Execute your cat for shaming you by losing a street fight. Shit cat.
Get new cat, arm it with Stanley knife.

Licking wounds speeds up clotting and tissue formation iirc.

This

Humans should also lick their own wounds, our spit works as both a natural anesthetic and clotting-helper, which is quite wierd considering how vile our spit is when it comes to bacteria.

Humans should NOT lick their own wounds, it's 2015. We developed medicine specifically for this reason. Use a first aid kit. You don't live in the Congo.

>My cat got injured in a fight [rest of post is completely irrelevant]

Yes, take it to the vet.

It's the saliva that helps with this, not the picking action. I'd be worried about a cat doing it since their tongues are so rough; they could go overboard and aggravate the wound instead. There's a reason you put them in a cone so they can't lick their stitches after surgery.

It didn't necessarily lose, to be fair.
