    the country.

    West of the Rockies, rabies is practically unheard of cats.  In the Northeast and parts of the South, it's really common.

    Everyone should always vaccinate any cat that goes outside, and should be aware of relevant state laws when deciding whether to vaccinate cats who don't.

    •  Here in CA, it's usually cats. Probably from bats. (1+ / 0-)

      At least in terms of domestics.

      Where I live (so cal w/i the forest boundary), rabies carriers are thus for 2012 (here, pdf):

      1. bats (145)
      2. skunks (10)
      3. fox (2)
      4. cat/dog/raccoon (1 each)

      Prior few years look different, includes one cow, but still mostlyt bats/skunks/fox.

      •  No cats in 2010. (1+ / 0-)

        Only four in the first decade of the millenium (here in CA).

        In NY, however, 42 in 2010.

        Mostly bats and skunks.

        The biggest reason to get a cat vaccinated for rabies here isn't fear of the cat getting rabies - it's so the cat won't have to be destroyed or quarantined if someone gets bit and tries to insist.
