  Do I need a tetanus shot(from a stray cat scratch)?
Hi. I'm 13 years old. Well, we have a cat that has been coming around for a couple months, and we give it food and water because it's really skinny. I was holding it, and then our dog ame around the corner and spooked it. It tore off and my hand was bleeding. I went to go wash it, but didn't use any soap. And no band aids either, because they were gone, so I wrapped it in tissue.

But we don't know if the cat is dirty. The scratches are kind of deep, and I never had a tetanus shot before, but the cat could be dirty and I didn't wash the cuts or close them in a band aid...
@Matuboo It was about 4 hours ago. The cat has been around for a few months, also. My parents say if it had rabies it would be dead already..But it isn't that severe. We washed it up a bit and it looks better..But if that is true, then It would probably be too late already..
