I've read all the responses and everyone guided you well. If you don't have a rabies tag for her, then don't tell him it's your cat (like you were advised). In my opnion, I don't think they would let you quarantine her at home since you have other animals. It's not worth the risk. Please,

Wow! Reading all of these messages with bad experience with cat bites, I consider myself VERY lucky. I've gotten bit a lot, but it sounds like it has to be a deep puncture type bite. Is this correct? I'm glad that you have shared your experiences. I bet most of us now won't mess around if we

Edna, So sorry you experienced such a horrible bite! Did it get infected? Is he a FeLV positive kitty? At least I know what to do now if it ever happens to me or any member of my family. It sounds much too painful. Some people take pain much better than others but not me, I'm a total wimp!!

I've been told the sameIFA test if cat has ever had a positive ELISA (snap) test. I have been told by my vet that 6 mos is safe to say that if it test negative after 6 mos of being exposed, then it's good. But once the cat/kitten receives a positive IFA test, then it's infected for life.

I disagree that if she is 5 mos old and has been diagnosed withFeLV, she must not have been born with it. I don't see how that could ever be proven. All kittens/cats have immune systems that can breakdown at different times. Here is my experience: My 3 mos old kitten that I fostered from the
