Need help. Neutered cat. Infection

On Wednesday I neutered my 10 months old cat. Every thing was fine that evening Thursday evening my cats health started to get bad. He stopped eating and drinking and the sac got swollen and on one side of it it was turning red now purple like pictures. I took him Saturday 2 am gave him a shot of antibiotics and he got fever too. Then he ate a bit every now and then. Some ooze came out during the night of Sunday too. He is still on antibiotics but very worried his fever went down a bit but still a bit high. I don't wanna lose him he's our only child. Anything else I can do? I am very very worried

I've no experience with this in cats, but it happened to one of our dogs. We put warm compresses on it to help it drain. We tested the temperature of the compress (just an old washcloth) like you would baby formula--touched it to the underside of our wrists to make sure it wasn't too hot--remember the area is going to be pretty sensitive and your cat isn't used to hotter than room temp water, so don't make it too hot. The warmth helped draw blood to the area, which helped the body to fight the infection and clear the extra fluids.

Maybe it would be an appropriate treatment for a kitty--but I'd check again with your vet before using it. Probably a good idea to check in with the vet again, anyway--maybe he'll have more suggestions?
