It really is impossible to provide you with good advice
without being able to examine the cat. The swelling might have caused damage to
the skin (swelling compresses the blood vessels and the poor blood supply leads
to the skin dying off, which will lead to hair loss - but it is also possible that the bite was from something poisonous and that the entire foot
could eventually be lost. You really need to take the cat to a vet.
