Could you get rabies/other diseases from a cat bite?

Cat bites -dangerous. Cat bites can actually be 'worse' than dog bites - with almost 80% becoming infected. That's because the needle like teeth of cats can puncture deeply, then the wound 'closes' and the conditions for an infection are set up. People should immunize their cats against rabies, because certainly they can bring that disease home -imagine if they bring in a dead bat! Make sure to take care of your cat.
Yes. Please have this medically evaluated. If you haven't had a tetanus shot in the last 10 years or you don't know when the last one - then please get another shot.
