Q. Can my cat have tylenol he was out side sothing scratch his snd his jaw is swallen

A. No it can be very toxic. If it has been caused by an insect bites or sting you can monitor it, if it doesn't decrease after a couple of hours or it affects breathing then you should see a vet. If you think he has been in a fight and it is an abscess or possibly hit by a car which has caused trauma then you should see your vet for appropriate pain relief and treatment.
