Exclamation Axolotl possibly touched "innapropiately". Should i be worried?

So tonight i had my axolotl out in a small container so i could clean her tank. Found my kitten hovering over her. (Totally my fault. I need to shut my door) His paw was wet. Not sure if he actually touched her or not. While i was taking him out of my room i walked back in to my mom stroking my axies side/tail and holding her in her fingers underwater (im not blaming her. She didnt know) . Is this bad for my axie, should i be concerned, is there something i can do for her?
Ask any question you need to

If your mother had clean fingers (no lotion, soap, perfume, taco sauce, etc) it will probably do no harm.
The cat is perhaps the bigger danger.

Ok, i checked in and she had clean hands. I dont think the cat actually touched my axolotl (i dont see any marks on her and didn't hear a splash or anything)
Thank you for a reply

If there are no marks, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
