Rabies is a virus that affects the nervous system and is always fatal. There is no known cure. Symptoms include behavior change, difficulty swallowing, excessive salivation, depression, eventual stupor and hind limb paralysis.

the disease is spread through the saliva of infected animals and can be transmitted through a bite or an open wound. Vaccinated pets exposed to rabies should be re-vaccinated and observed for 90 days. un-vaccinated pets exposed to rabies should be isolated for 6 months.

Rabies vaccination is an essential part of a preventive cat health care programme and many communities have laws requiring the vaccination of pets against rabies.
