    got bit by feral kitten yesterday.. pierced the skin on finger. It bled for a second. I washed with soap. It never swelled up or got red nor was it painful after. Haven't gone to doctor ,, not sure if necessary, I don't feel any symptoms of infection?!?! :/ but def been paranoid about it.

  15. The Cat that smokes Weed says:

    When I was 9 my old cat bit my arm and 3 days later I got a 104 fever and I had to take 3 shots.

  16. If you got bitten but scared to go to the doctor then better wash it immediately with soap and water then dose it with isopropyl alcohol. Take also 1000mg of vitamin C for a month.

  17. Gayle Cheung says:

    I’m just on antibiotics now after yesterday’s scary cat bite which turned into an infection which never happened before I talk about a doozy and scary incident.

  18. You're probably a dick so your cat bit you.
