The same thing happened to my cat but it was her neck, I literally could see a hole and blood constantly dripped. I like you didn't have the money so, I used antibiotic cream and covered the hole. Cats are amazing how they can heal ! Use the salve to cover the hole and keep doing it, chances are the cat will heal its self,

Try to call the Humane Society, ASPCA, Pets911 or some other animal organization. They might have some advice on how to help your cat, or might be able to put you in touch with a nicer vet than the one you got. Sorry - I wish I knew more.
BTW - has your cat had his rabies shot? If not, you NEED to just get him and yourself some medical attention regardless of the cost. Handling an animal infected with rabies can be very dangerous to you. Call your doctor.
