Animal Bites And Rabies

Patient: Hi, I am female, from the Philippines. Today I got bitten around the palm area by our pet cat. We were trying to treat her wounds when she attacked me. The bite punctured like a needle. It’s a tiny bite, but it was bleeding. I pressed down firmly on the bitten area using my fingers, and I washed it with soap and water. My plan is to wait and observe the cat for 10-14 days for signs of rabies infection. Is it the right thing to do? Thank You.
