Cat just badly scratched me advice?

I have phoned and left a message with my MW but just thought I'd ask you ladies too!

My usually loving tabby cat just jumped me and scratched my arms, legs and hands, he got his claws stuck in me and I had you scream to get him off and unhook his claws from in my skin.

I have cleaned it all up with antiseptic swab things, but just wondering if I'm needing to do anything else as my last tetanus was probably 1992/1993?

Thanks in advance x

Hmm I'd also go get checked in case there's any chance of him having had cat poo under his claws which can pass on toxoplasmosis? Don't want to scaremonger and might be madly off the mark as to how this is passed on but if your MW doesn't call back in a couple of hours I'd be tempted to try my GP?

Hope it's not too sore hon. x
