LAGUNA BEACH ANIMAL SERVICES reported recently that a cat killed a bat that tested positive for rabies.
- The cat was not up-to-date on rabies vaccination.
- No current rabies certificate could be furnished.
- As a result, the cat must undergo a six month rabies quarantine, per state law. Had the rabies vaccine been current, only a one month quarantine would be required.
And the owner is going through post rabies exposure treatment.
