Unhappy Got in contact with a domestic cat, do I need to be worried about rabies?

There's a cat in my hood which seems to be a domestic cat but I dont know who owns her. She seems to have had surgery a while ago cause her stomach was shaved. I played a bit with her today and had a little toy for her which she played with and chewed on and later when I picked it up it was wet with her spit.
And now I'm worried cause I had cut myself on the thumb a few days ago and the cut still isn't totally healed. Was this a risk? What if I got saliva on it? I washed my hands afterwards a few times. In the past I'd never have worried about this but someone I know got biten by a cat and he was totally afraid of rabies for years!
