Rabies?!
« on: February 18, 2014, 05:57:30 PM »
I have a bunch of cats outside my house none vaccinated. recently one showed up with a huge wound on his face like huuuge and he attacked one of the other cats. My house cat got out of the house on accident a few times because of the hole where we are replacing the heating system. Now i am terrified I have rabies. I haven't been bitten or anything but I possibly come into contact with my cats saliva all the time.

I can't see how you'd get rabies, if that were the case there'd be a LOT of human cases of rabies around.  Because there are many people who feed stray cats, have contact with things like that.  If that cat with the huge wound is still around he'd be noticeably sick and acting REALLY strange if he had rabies.  Feral cats fight with other feral cats ALL the time, it's what they do.  But I'd get my cat his shots as soon as you can.   Cats that go outside can get feline AIDS and things like that (no you can't get that from a cat :winking0008:)

I would highly recommend getting your cat vaccinated. A trip to the vet could not only settle your fears if you tell the vet about your concerns, but also make your cat safer!
