Back in June of 08 we had a scare with Rabies. We were given two kittens that were only about 8wks old.
To make a long story short one of the kittens developed rabies by the end of the her second wk with us.
Our cat that we have had for years was an indoor cat and of course as most are guilty of was late on his rabie shots.
We are now into the 10th wk of the time they say rabies takes to develop in cats.
My question though is:
When humans are exposured to rabies like us we had to get shots within a certain time to protect us from contracting rabies. Our cat hershey was given a booster in June to help him.
Does the same rule apply for animals? Since he was not current on his rabies and lets say the cat had bitten him(she didn't)but he was given a shot within days of finding out the kitten had rabies can they still develop rabies?
Our cat was not bitten or scrtached or anything by this kitten. They did however share the same water bowl and litter box.
Thanks for any info anyone can provide!!
