Cat bite?

Has a cute little cat managed to sink his teeth into your luscious flesh lately? In multiple places, most notably on a joint? Wondering if it will get horribly infected?

The answer is PROBABLY.

That’s right. Cats have dirty little mouths (dirty as in bacterial dirty, not dirty like a sailor’s). Not nearly as dirty as a human’s, but dirty enough that you will see serious infection in about 50% of bites, according to the doc who treated me.
