i actually know of a person who died from a cat bite. i don't know all of the details because he started working at the humane society after i left, but i was told by an old co-worker. he was bit by a stray cat and he didn't pay attention to the infection i guess. anyway, he had trouble breathing one day about a week or a little more after the bite and went into the hospital. the infection had moved to his heart and he died. i was completely shocked when i heard that. so, please, please, please be SUPER careful if you are ever bitten by a cat! i was bitten once, at the humane society (it was my job to look at all the new "stray" cats coming in to look for matches with the lost cats - i was the lost and found dept!) i went straight back to the clinic and washed it with 3 different things!
