It sounds as if he got in a fight with another cat when he went AWOL for 6 days. It's possible he has another infection from a bite or claw in his paw...is there any swelling or discharge or feel hot? I'm thinking he may be developing an abscess in his paw. The antibiotics tho should be helping that. You could bathe or hold his paw in a pan of warm salt water solution for a few minutes a couple of times a day....that may help draw out any infection if there is one, and it certainly won't harm him. If he his leg worsens tho, take him back to the vet. Good luck!
