How did the cats get the rabies in the first place? Are there other animals running around with the disease?

The answer is yes there is, it has to be spread from one animal to another, people need to be alert in that area.

Yes. Skunks, opposums, and dogs (the ones that I know of) can carry rabies. So it is possible that a kitten coming in contact with something else carring rabies.

Maybe it once belonged to JOHN WAYNE'S HORSE!

Maybe the fools who abandoned the L'kitty has it also.Maybe they need to come forward so we can euthanize them and biopsy their grey matter. Come on now York has thousands of ferile cats. Do the math. LOL

Can't we somehow blame the death of this kitty-cat on the PA GAME COMMISSION? Should be some way.
