Ok, Do not jump to conclusions, or get scared, but I am gonna tell you a story that happened to a friend of mine. She got scratched by a cat, and didn't properly clean the area after the scratch had occurred, a week later she was in the hospital almost dead, and the baby barley hanging on, they had to do emergency C-section to get the baby out 8 weeks early, and she had to have a blood transfusion. I would say if its an indoor cat, that is VERY clean, you should be fine... make sure you clean the area with peroxide VERY WELL daily until healed. I would call your OB just to let him know as well, as cats carry MANY things that can cause harm to a pregnant woman. Don't freak out, or get scared as I said above, this was an outdoor cat that scratched my friend, and she never took the time to clean the area after.
