Why is my cat growling all of a sudden? is it a symptom of anything?

today my kid stepped on the cat. ever since then she wont stop growling..even hissing at me, Is she just pissed off at bad kids like me ? or is it a sign shes is in pain or hurt? yes i know 1 answer ill get is "TAKE HER TO A VET" but im saving up to fix her (she was a street cat i took in during the harsh cold winter. and can't afford the vet just to look at her).. so if you know anything about this please help...if she is hurt looks like ill be spending the cash ive saved to fix her to fix whats hurting her if i can..but im not taking her to a vet just to hear shes fine.

observe how she acts for the next couple of days, for ex. if she was stepped on her paw see if she limps around and licks that one area the most. if so she is most likely injured and you should take her to a vet. if not she is most likely still just a little nervous about getting stepped on. my dog is like that, if you step on her tail by accident she will growl if you come near her for a little while, then she will stop.

Cats aren't humans; they can't hold anger. This means if she is growling and hissing, or doesn't even want to be touched, she is in pain and might actually have fractured some bone, depending on where she was stepped on. Therefore, you need to make it friendly, after which you can tend to to it.
