Cat Bite

Fostering a 15 year old female from the local shelter. It was time to get her out from under my bed. I was going to put her in a large dog crate with a litter box, bed, and food to get her used to me otherwise she would stay under my bed forever. She freaked when i caught her and bit and scratched me. Well it was a deep bit and i waited 2 days before going to urgent care. Doctor had me go to the ER for IV antibiotics then 2 days later go to the big city to a hand clinic. Bite was quite painful and pus came out. Doctor drew a line around bite, took xrays, and said if i get a blue line going up my arm go asap to the ER. It seems to be getting better so one more time to the big city doctor and i should be done.

Just want to warm people if you get bite by a cat call your doctor asap. This was a deep bite. i've been bitten lightly by my cats and nothing every happened, but this was deep.


Razzle and Geets-they left paw prints on my heart. Love you, love you always.
