Hi – thanks for your email. I’m sorry to hear about that. Cat bites can be serious as they are prone to infection. I’d recommend that you see your doctor to ensure you get proper treatment. The scary thing about cat bite wounds as they often don’t look bad initially but can develop into very serious infections.

An article that might be helpful to you is on our is Animal Bites, Rabies, and Quarantine in Cats or/and Cat scratch Disease.

Best of luck!
