Rabies in cats is exceedingly rare. Probably the dog got it from wildlife or other dog. “The only means through which rabies can transfer from an animal to a human is through saliva. The saliva of the infected can be transmitted from animal to animal and to human through direct biting, contact of saliva into skin scratches, abrasions, open wounds or direct contact with the eyes, nose and mouth.

However, contact with a rabid animal’s blood, urine, feces and even petting is not considered exposure.” Hoping people read this and take it in, along with their companion cats.
