I think my cat was bitten by a raccoon. Any advice?

My cat spends his days inside and nights outside. He's always back in the morning, but this morning he had two bite wounds - one on either side of his front leg. Not really knowing what else to do, I put hydrogen peroxide and bactine on the wounds. (I also called and left a message at the vet's office for an appt. next week) Luckily, his leg is not broken, although he does have a limp. He's about four years old and I just had him into the vet three weeks ago to get rabies and distemper shots again. Any advice before the vet re-opens on Monday would be appreciated. Thank you.
