Hi

My name is Sarah and I am at this farm in Florence for a week and there are these cats who are somewhat friendly and the one had scratched me should I be concerned?
Please help.

All you can do is make sure you keep the scracth clean and put antiseptic cream on it to kill off any bacteria etc.

I wouldn't worry otherwise. If the cat that scracthed you looked well enough for you to want to go near it in the first place it is unlikley that it is carrying anything nasty which could be passed to you.

Don't forget though, hygiene is very importnat after you touch stray cats anyway.

Hope you are enjoying your stay in Florence.

Kate
