Question #7850119

Do I need to go to the ER over a cat bite?

I know cat bites can be severe.. I was bitten on the arm this evening by a young cat I had rescued the evening before. I was wearing long sleeves but the bite did still puncture my flesh. The cat itself was just excited I am pretty sure and it has no wounds itself (not worried then really about rabies). I am aware that infections are likely with cat bites and it is too late for an urgent care clinic. I washed and dressed the wounds properly immediately afterwards... Can I wait til morning to have it looked at?
