Rabid Bats In Los Angeles County So Far This Year

LA County Veterinary Public Health reports two rabid bats so far this year, one of them nearby in the San Fernando Valley.

This should serve as a reminder to keep your cats' vaccinations current, even if they are strictly indoors. There are at least two documented cases in the United States of indoor-only cats getting rabies from bats that found their way indoors - and the cats of course DIED.
