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.
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!
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! :-).
