Be cautious about suggesting that any cats rounded-up from outdoors be used for adoption or youRead More could be held criminally responsible. There's no way to know a wild-harvested cats' vaccination history, if any, nor their exposure to all the deadly diseases cats carry. If a cat has contracted rabies then a vaccination against it later will do no good. It's already too late. There's also no reliable known test for rabies while keeping the animal alive. They really need to be destroyed after they are trapped. It's the only sane and sensible solution. This is precisely why all wild-harvested animals in the world, of any type intended for the pet-trade, must undergo an extended quarantine period of AT LEAST 6 months, BY LAW, before transfer or sale of those animals to prevent just these things. Cats are no different than any other animal when harvested from the wild. You're just risking these following stories happening in every shelter across the land. Google for: rabid cat adopted wake county Google for: rabid kitten found jamestown exposure Adopting or approaching any unknown cat that's been outdoors is just playing Russian Roulette. The net is flooded with similar examples every week. THOUSANDS of people must endure, pay for (out of their own pocket) the painful and expensive (more than $3000) rabies shots if they get scratched or bitten by any stray, especially if that cat cannot be trapped again to destroy it and test for rabies. Stray-cat feeders are guaranteeing this, by training these cats to approach humans for food. The cats then lashing out by biting or scratching at any hands that try to touch them. Two recent cases of rabid cats in search of human-supplied foods: one entering an unlocked pet-door and another coming right through the family's ceiling. One attack so bad the family required hospitalization. Even vaccinating your cat against rabies won't prevent it from finding a rabid bat dying on the ground to rip it to shreds for its daily play-toy. Bringing back a mouthful or claws full of fresh rabies virus to you, your family, neighbors, other pets, or other animals.

I hope you aren't also so stupid to believe that just because you deleted the information that IRead More posted of how and why rabid cats and kittens are now being adopted direct from shelters because of community-college vets who aren't even smart enough to know how rabies is spread nor how vaccines work, that you think by deleting that information that this now protects you from ever adopting-out a rabid animal one day. Because it's not a matter of "if", but "when" you do -- from violating national and international health-laws for rabies containment that were designed to prevent just these things. Your usual bliss borne of self-inflicted ignorance that you wallow in all your sorry and useless lives is not going to save your sorry asses this time. For when you DO adopt-out a rabid animal to some unsuspecting family, and they all have to get rabies shots, their other pets be quarantined for over 6 months or destroyed (as in the other cases I provided for you as proof), or if any of them die of rabies -- I hope like hell that they sue your sorry, pathetic, stupid, and criminally-negligent asses so hard and deep that NONE of you ever recover from it for the rest of your useless and terminally-ignorant lives. How's your liability insurance? Is it up to date to cover lawsuits and litigation in excess of $10 million? Better get some! You fuckingly stupid MORONS!
