If you get scratched by a cat?

What will happen to you?

Report as

You'll bleed. It might get infected if you don't clean and treat it.

Well, you will have a scratch wherever you were scratched, just clean the wound. Not like anything major will happen, unless you mean "Cat" as a Tiger. Then I suggest going to the hospital.

Hi. This definitely gave me a giggle! I knew what you meant.... I think.... Not to be picky, but if I'm right, I think you meant "Cat Scratch Fever" By Ted Nuggent. It's an old 70's song. A good one at that. If that isn't what you meant, you still gave me a happy morning giggle, Thanks! Have a great day! Happy! Happy!

The typical house cat....nothing but trickle a little blood if deep enough. If its from one of their bigger cousins....its not a scratch but a gouge that might just hurt a little more O.O

Healthy cats , as well as unhealthy cats will scratch for various reasons. A healthy cat's scratch should be treated with alcohol or some type antiseptic. It should first be scrubbed with hot water and soap then covered with the cream.
Keep an eye on the scratch for redness.Call doctor if it looks like it is headed for an infection. If the cat is sick. Call your doctor to see if you need a tetanus shot.

Yep, right down the street from our house(which overlooks the Ocean and some of the other Virgins) is a really neat Rocky stretch, usually isolated, full of corrals, shells and ..sadly... Lots of Jetsam.. Especially in this season when the winds come from the North-East. You would love it!!!:-)

Actually our Island doesn't have many real Sandy Beaches, most are mix of Limestone, Corral etc. whole Island surrounded by the largest Living Reef in the Caribbean outside of Belize. And there's a Long, deep trench which runs right off-shore where lots of the "beach-corral&shells come from. Quite well known Diving Spot. Amongs many here on St Croix! Really is a beautiful Island! They actually show-cased it on that Dumb(to me anyway) show The Bachelor, last night and Andrew Zimmerman was here recently filming for his show on the Food Ch. Like his show, plus he seems like an honestly nice guy!:-) will keep eye out for when that airs and give you a heads-up!:-)
Report as
Gd luck with the lights, keep warm!! :-)
Report as
oh wow...the bachelor..dumb for sure hahah
So you live on the Islands? I never knew that..The Caribbean...St Croix/ Holy moly...Paradise..Love the Food Channel lol..
The ocean we visit is similar.Wonderful low tides expose so much land..all type shells .Nice for New England water. No beach to speak of..rocky but I love walking it.
I prefer that one to the beaches in the area. Sand uckkyyyy lol GIVE ME ROCKS!!!
I like to paint on rocks too.Come help me with the dang tree!

The seeds of the cat race will infect you, implanting its offspring into your body.
Thus, you will become the new queen of the cat race. But if it's just a normal cat you are not acquainted with you probably want to check for rabies and or other animal transferred viruses. :D:

Hi. With a name like Mighty Mouse, you may want to steer clear of Kitty Cats altogether! I'm pretty sure everyone in front of me has covered your next actions to prevent infections. Kitty's are wonderful to hold and play with. Be careful though, they sometimes forget our skin is not covered in thick fur like theirs. Have a great day and take an extra band-aid... (just in case!) Pat the kitty for me too!

Hi Happeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey! Can't find that durn L.A. Real Estate question.. Realized I only commented, so doesn't show in my Q&A! Arrghh.
"Lead me back if want by commenting under it soon and will follow from your profile.:-)

You are soooo smart. This is one of the many reasons I keep you around! Big HUGE Happeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey's and giggles and goosebumps and all those "g" words! Try looking up www.villamarpl.com. If that doesn't work, try prmalibu.com that stands for Pritchett-Rapf. They are the real estate people. Jack Pritchett is the realtor. If that doesn't fly, try HOMESANDLAND.COM. The Mag. is called: Homes&Land OF MALIBU TO BEVERLY HILLS. (That's the way it's printed on the cover of the magazine with the caps and no caps.) For the life of me, I can't find that issue. I'll try to look it up too. I REALLY DO want to share it with you. Let me look it up too. ... Don't foget to put on some "Boston" for Toni and the East Coast while we wait for my feeble brain to find it. Thanks witt for showing such an interest. These houses have played a major role in our lives for the last 3 years! Be Right Back! Happy! Happeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!

Good for you.. and him. A little afternoon delight. Hurray!

Nothing really in specific. Just a little bit of what occupies my time and mind when I'm not playing with my friends and helping when I can on Ask. Also, so you can see what I see. Kind of a sharing sort of thing. Happy! Happy!

If this doesn't work, it's no biggie. But, it's worth a shot. :) Please try: https://www.zillow.com. Once you are there, try typing in this address: 5620 Villa Mar Pl. Malibu, CA 90265. A buying sheet should come up. The whole idea is for you to SEE it. You don't have to sign in or anything and CERTAINLY do not have to buy it. Unless, of course, you would like to drop 5 mill. and move to Malibu! hahahahahahahha Let me know if it works when you can. Enjoy your husband and have a super great Hapeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey! Afternoon together! Happy! Happy!

If you clean the scratch and put a bandaid with some antibiotic cream on for day or two, you will be fine! Cat Scratch Fever not that common and really mainly a worry for Pregnant women.. Which I'm pretty sure you aren't! :-).
