A friend from Louisiana had posted on Facebook and I just saw it but I think it was Friday or Saturday this happened. He and his wife have always been cat lovers. Apparently they had an outside cat that was a bit wild but probably not as wild as Cat. My friend went out early that morning and saw that the cat was sick. He went to see about her and she bit him – seriously bit him – for sure on one hand, maybe on both. I was reading quickly and didn’t get all the details. I think he went in to clean up his wounds, came back out and the cat was dead. He went to the ER and is still not out of the woods with that bite. The cat had rabies so now he’s dealing with infected wounds and having to take rabies treatments.
That’s exactly why I was determined to catch Cat and get her vaccinated.
If you’re feeding feral cats or have stray cats around, please, please be careful. You don’t have to be trying to pet them for them to attack if they have rabies.
I will be sure anyone who buys our Texas house knows that Cat was vaccinated in May, 2020. If it were me, I’d be fine with going two years before the next vaccination but they can make their own call about that.
