    Hopefully you have been able to get your cat into the vet by now. Usually if the wounds get cleaned out good the only other thing is to keep them clean and maybe take antibiotics. Watch kittie for signs of infection (temperature, redness, swelling, lethargy) and if those occur, recheck immediately with the vet. Let us know how kittie is doing. Purrring for healing, Bella
