Sometimes cats can get too aggressive or playful. When that happens, you risk getting scratched. While cat scratches are rarely fatal, they can get infected so it’s important that you treat it right away.

If the cat has been vaccinated and stays indoors, chances are good the scratches won’t be deadly. However if an unknown cat scratches you, then you may need to seek medical attention.

While cats can be friendly and cute, they can also be deadly and vicious, just like many co-workers. So be careful around your cat. Sometimes a cat may scratch you out by mistake or out of fear, but sometimes cats may just be mean, just like many people you may know.
