OK so this might sound a bit silly but I worry and over think things and now I'm laying in bed worried because one of my kittens bit my toe and it was so sore and it did bleed a bit. Do I need to do anything? Like do i need an injection? Or is it ok?

Squeeze the blood out to clean it
You could soak your toe in dettol water or salt water to clean it
Failing that, wash well with antibacterial soap
Run germolene in
This is what I do
If your toe falls off, I take no responsibility ;)

Seriously you don't want an infection. It should be fine especially if an indoor cat.

Claws or teeth?
Teeth are worse as their mouth is full of bacteria

Thank you, I cleaned it out well after squeezing the blood and put some antibacterial cream on. It was a bite with teeth. Not very big bite but it did hurt.
