New., 1,, .l Forty-two rabid cats exposed more than three times as many Texans to Rabies last year than rabid skunks, reports the Texas Department of Health (TDH). The danger of rabies in pets was poin- ted out by Dr. F0y V. McCasland, who said 120 persons were exposed to rabies by cats. In contrast, only 36 humans were exposed through contact with rabid skunks, said Dr. McCasland, Chief of the Bureau of Veterinary Public Health of the TDH. If all humans exposed to rabid cats during 1982 received post-exposure treatment, the cost would have been some $60,000 - per person. Almost 1,500 persons started the antl-rabies in- Jection series last year using vaccine obtained through the Texas Depar- tment of Health. The first defense against rabies, a virtual death sentence in humans, is the vaccination of all pets. This is especially true for dogs and cats, because they are closely associated with humans and represent a much greater danger of rabies transmission to people. Even though state law requires an- nual rabies vaccination of dogs and cats, a much lower percentage of cats than dogs is actually vaccinated.

While dogs may be confined by fences, cats are able to climb fences and range widely throughout a neigh- borhood. All pet owners are urged to have their cats, as well as dogs, vaccinated again- st rabies. It not only protects the animal but also protects pet owners, friends, neighbors and relatives who may come in contact with the pet.
