Go to the hospital just to make sure it's not getting infected. Did the animal have rabies?

Should get it checked out.

Cats can be more vicious than some dogs sometimes. I've worked at many animal shelters and I've had more bad experiences with cats than I can count.

Until you can make it in to see the doc, I'd recommend washing it two to three times a day with warm water and soap, patting it dry, covering it with a thin film of triple antibiotic ointment, then covering it with a bandage, a fresh one every time.

Our dog was bitten by a cat and the vet told us that for whatever reason cat bites tend to get infected and can be worse than dog bites (infection-wise) so I would get it checked out if I were you. Before it gets too bad!
Good luck OP!

My daughter was recently bitten by a dog and the doctor who treated her said the same thing about canine vs. feline bites--apparently cats' mouths harbor more human-harmful bacteria than the mouths of dogs, despite the established perceptions of the relative cleanliness or lack thereof of dogs and cats.
