Just saw your question. A little more to add to this information as being an Infectious disease physician.
Cat bites can lead to a variety of infections as they carry a number of bacteria in their teeth, saliva and oral cavity.I would like briefly list them for you.
1. Risk of bacterial infections like streptococcus, staphylococcus, morexella and many more which can lead to redness, cellultis and deep infection at the bite site.
2. There are anaerobes in the mouth of cats like bacteroides, fusobacterium and porphyromonas which can lead to infection at bite site.
3. Cat scratch disease: Cat's bite can lead to cat scratch disease caused by "Bartonella henslae"a gram negative bacteria,which leads to pain and swelling and unilateral axillary lymph nodes swelling.
4. Pasturella multocida: Another gram negative bacterial infection caused by cat bite leads to rapidly developing cellulitis (redness and pain of skin and soft tissues).
5. Capnocytophaga: A gram negative infection commonly caused by dogs but can also be caused by cats. It leadsto severe infection/sepsis inelderly, immunocompromised and people without spleen.
6.Bacillary angiomatosis: An infection by cat bites in patients with HIV/AIDS.
7. Rabies: If a cat is unvaccinated for rabies, one should immediately get Human rabies immunoglobulin and rabies vaccine
7. Tetanus: If some one has not received a tetanus booster in the last 10 years, should get tetnus toxoid immediately.
So dont take such bites lightly, they can lead to problems.Keep an eye on you and get an early appointment with your infectious disease specialist.Thanks
