OMG - when I got bit a couple months ago I just ran inside and washed it out 
really good with soap and water.  That was it.  Guess I was lucky.  I had read 
that soap and water are good enough as long as you wash it good so now when I 
get scratched I just use soap and water.  Anyway,  I never went to the doc 
until three weeks later for something else.  That's when I talked to him about 
it and he fussed at me.  Guess I'll be more careful next time.  Yikes!

“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are 
profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon 
unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me 
sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain
