Re: [Felvtalk] Reporting a bite!

I knew this, Lee, but thanks for reminding any newcomers of this very
important information..I rescue cats and I've been bitten many times 
but I never report the bite as one of my own cats!

saliva, afraid of infection or things like that, DO NOT TELL THEM THAT
YOUR ANIMAL did the damage. If it's a bite, you can say that your
parrot got off his perch and bit you or that you hammered a rusty nail
into your finger, anything but an animal bite.

I know better now, thanks to this thread. Fortunately, I don't think there's 
any problem. My doc knows the situation, but we haven't gotten a call so far. 
The Health Department never asked me anything about why I was prescribed a 
tetanus shot.

That is a good idea, if you are sure the cat is fine. Where I live
(in WI) the animal would have to be quarantined for 10 days,
with three vet visits-one at the start and the end, and one in
the middle. Pain in the butt!
