Ouch! I've had only two cat bites in forty-five years of cat ownership....yes, one was trying to get a Russian Blue/Manx in his carrier after a serious gash in his throat by a weasel, and he bit me in the fleshy party of the hand between my thumb and forefinger. I didn't know how serious cat bites could be back then, and my main concern was to get the cat to the vet, where he had to have his neck flushed and stitched and was pumped full with antibiotics. It wasn't until the next day my hand swelled up like a mitt and had to get antibiotic and tetanus shots, and antibiotic pills from my doc. Yes, always tend to a cat bite immediately.
