NO need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
HI XXXXXXX

Greetings from Dr.Divakara.P
Thanks for posting your query.

See if you can observe the cat for 10 days and nothing happens to cat then no need for anything to be done .

But if you cannot observe the cat or if in the next 10 days the cat dies you need to get Rabies Vaccination.

Also you need to get a Tetanus Shot if you have not been given tetanus shot in past 3 years. And clear the bite wound with soft soap and antibiotic solution.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask .
