    Unhappy Worried :S

    I'm twelve now and i got my tetnus jab when I was little. A cat bit me about 3 weeks ago it hardly broke the skin it didn't even bleed + as soon as i got home i got all antiseptic creams we have at put it on . I have showed no signs of tetnus but im still very worried :S

    Megan, any kind of bite can lead to various infections. Your bite was shallow and you did well in treating it quickly. Watch it carefully for redness, swelling, a feeling of hotness in the area, or weeping pus. See a doctor if anything about the bite gives you cause for concern.

    My cats bite me ALL the time. Especially if I'm dangling string at them... and my older one's claws are getting too long... (she thinks it's a gentle paw swipe. I end up with two inches of gaping wound )
    Keep an eye out for infection, keep it clean, IF the infection lasts more than a few days, or turns into giant red streaks up your arm, run for the antibiotics, but otherwise you should be fine.

    Last time I had a cat bite the cat had to get an injection

    I think you would have signs of something by now if there was something to worry about but just keep an eye on it.
    I live in a tecno world. A world of precision, accuracy and finites.
    Art is the opposite of that for me. I dont expect to be good and that is not my aim. I want to enjoy it and let my inner artist define its own art... here's hoping, where do I begin.....
