This stupid fucking stray cat, I just want it to let me love it.
I will pay all of the vet fees, I will feed this idiot what ever it needs.
I have spent at least 3 years trying to get close to this stray, recently he has started hobbling.
A couple of days a go I managed to stroke him, he seemed to really enjoy it and our relationship has grown massively but today he bit me, it drew blood.
My question is will sudocrem fix this or do I need to see my GP?

How deep and is it starting to go red and have you washed it out and used anti-septic wipes as well?

Oh and fwiw, even tame bastards can suddenly decide you look tastier than food.

My cat bites the shit out of me on a regular basis.

However, if it is a really deep bite, I would maybe go to a pharmacist or ring NHS choices for a bit of advice.

It's not very deep and it hasn't turned red, I used anti septic wipes and some sudocrem.

Are your tetanus jabs up-to-date? If not, you'd better get a booster.

Be careful, cat bites can turn very infected. They have grubby wee mouths. If it starts to look dodgy, don't wait to get it looked at.

How's it looking this evening?

The bite seems fine, not swollen or red.
Tonight he is letting me stroke him again.

I've worked with animals my whole life, in rescues and on farms etc...
My 2 most serious injuries were both cat bites... I've broken metatarsals, my elbow, wrist, been booted by cows, nipped by collies and the ones I would swap for anything else would be the cat bites.
