Hello!

When a wound is open and/or bleeding you should go to a veterinarian as soon as possible as it should be cleaned and put stitches.

What you can do while waiting to get to the clinic is to put pressure on the wound with possible sterilized material to cut off possible bleeding.
Also, you can clean it with hydrogen peroxide and/or iodine, and prevent your cat from licking the area.

All the best for you and Skywalker.
