    It's probably another cat or a fox. Take him back to the vet as he's likely to need a course of anti-biotics.

    This often happens - we know that a cat has been bitten but don't know by what. We generally treat them all the same though. Most cats will need antibiotics given by mouth.

    Most snakebites are treated the same way. There are some areas that have poisonous snakes but these bites are usually really obvious with horrible swelling and even sloughing.

    Hope your cat does ok!
