Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your bite! It is usually recommended to seek a physician's care for a cat bite because most often these bites are puncture wounds due to a cat's teeth shape and the bacteria can get deeper under the skin where it is difficult to wash out thoroughly. Was this just a scrape/scratch on the surface or was it a puncture wound?
If the puncture was anything other than very superficial, the safest thing to do would be to have your doctor take a look at it and prescribe an antibiotic. Without seeing a wound in person, it is hard for me to assess depth, but cat bites can cause serious issues, so it is better to be safe than sorry. Here is an article on animal bites FYI : http://www.mayoclinic.org/first-aid/first-aid-animal-bites/basics/art-20056591
Since it has been 48 hours, the risk of infection if there is no pain or swelling is probably lower, but may still be worth getting checked out. I would recommend calling your physician when they open in the morning for their recommendation!
