Rabies-Infected Feral Cats Attack Humans (Volusia, FL)

Just a reminder about being careful around the neighborhood stray cats, who are more active and aggressive this time of year due to the breeding season........there appears to be a significant rabies problem developing in the strays in Volusia, FL according to this piece on

We recommend rabies vaccination for ALL cats regardless of lifestyle or housing. This is in keeping with the position of CDC and WHO. Your housecat can easily get outside and have unplanned contact with feral strays, and we DO still have rabid bats all over L.A.County that can spread the disease to other species.
