Cat with a Swollen Paw - Broken or Abscess?

Harry the cat came in to see our veterinarians  for a swollen paw. He is a indoor and outdoor cat. Dr. Ahalt had his veterinary technicians take a x-ray to make sure nothing was broken. The x-ray showed that nothing was broken, so the leg was swollen from a possible abscess since he goes outdoors he could have gotten a wound from fighting another cat or some source of injury that was no longer visible but had caused the swelling. We have him some antibiotics and pain medications here at the hospital in hopes the swelling will go down and make him more comfortable.
