Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr B :

There are bacterial infections that are associated with cat bites, and your wife may have one of them. It is advisable that she see a doctor as soon as possible for an examination because she may require antibiotics to treat her , it sounds like she has an infection, and it may spread if it is not treated
