My cat Pootie bit me in March and it was infected within 12 hours.  I ended up 
in the ER and they said had I not come in, it could have killed me.  Get to the 
ER and when asked whose cat just tell them yours and the cat has its shots.  
They never asked for proof of rabies on my cat, no one ever came to my house or 
called me nor did they even ask the cat's name.  But, DO go to the doctor or ER 
ASAP.  That is nothing to play around with.  I was at the ER until 4:30 am 
getting IV antibiotics.
