The Manchester Union Leader is reporting that a stray cat in Keene tested positive for rabies after attacking someone on their porch. New Hampshire law requires that every dog, cat or ferret aged 3 months or older shall be vaccinated for rabies. Unfortunately, some owned cats in the neighborhood had to be euthanized because they may have been exposed and their owner couldn’t provide proof of vaccination. The owner’s only other choice would have been to pay for a 6 months quarantine.
So, please everyone, vaccinate your cats for rabies! Even inside cats can be exposed.
