If I can get a pic of my finger later, I'll post it, but at current I'll just have to describe it.

Last night I had to put my cat down. I didn't have money to take him to the vet, so I opted to do it myself. Well, I had a friend help me, as he's put down several animals on his farm.

The cat bit me, on the pinky finger. Of course I had to read up on animal bites, just to know. But they just made me worry even more about getting an infection. I have no health insurance.

The inital bite hurt, and as soon as the cat was burried I washed my hands thouroughly. I was still up half the night because my hand felt like it was on fire. Now, I can't even bend my pinky to type.

Should I just go to the ER and tell them what happened? I know the cat doesn't have rabies, if that helps. He was up-to-date on all vaccinations.

*************************************************************************************************************

For everyone who seems to think this is a troll, is wrong. Unfortunately, YES I chose to put my animal down in such a way. It sucked. I cried. I'm glad he bit me. I deserved it. But he was 18, had BRAIN CANCER, and literally scratched his ear off. I couldn't let him suffer.

For everyone saying I could have called around and found someone to euthenize him, yes. I did call around. No one could do it till Monday at the earliest. The poor cat was suffering, and I couldn't stand by and let my selfishness of never wanting to lose him make him suffer more.

You need to have the wound treated and put on antibiotics. You will have to tell them that this is a result of animal cruelity. You may be facing charges.
