Most clients do not realize that rabies vaccinations-- even for indoor cats-- is state law. Even an indoor cat can escape outdoors if a door is left open or there is a fire in the house. The main animals that get rabies include raccoons, skunks, foxes, and bats. Cats are more likely to be reported rabid in the US since they are often in close contact with both humans and wild animals. Bats, for example, can and often do get into homes through the attic or chimney. Their bites are so small that they are not visible on human skin and humans often do not even feel them. Animals can get bitten similarly. Children often report a bird in their bedroom when it is actually a bat. The bat should be captured alive or dead and the local animal control official notified. Please keep your cats-- whether indoor or outdoor-- current on their Rabies Vaccination.
