The Doctors: When Cats Attack

The Doctors TV show shared a video from Molly, who suffered a cat bite on her hand several weeks ago.

After being bitten by her cat, she washed her hands and then went to bed. She woke up and her hand was throbbing so she put some ice on it. It continued to get worse. She took a picture of the bite and emailed it to her doctor, and he instructed her to go to the emergency room.
