Stafford (WFVA) -- The Stafford Sheriff's Office says a second rabid cat has been confirmed in North Stafford. Last Wednesday Animal Control received a report of a sick or injured cat on a porch on Bruce Street in the Amyclae subdivision. The cat was picked up by an Animal Control Officer and taken to an area veterinarian's office. While placing the cat in its carrier to go to the Animal Shelter the Animal Control Officer was scratched. The cat was quarantined and then euthanized after its condition worsened. Animal Control received word today that the cat tested positive for rabies. This is the second report of a rabid cat in Stafford County in the last two weeks. You are reminded to not approach or try to capture stray or wild animals. Animal owners should always maintain the appropriate vaccinations for their animals and, if possible, keep animals confined to the premises to avoid the threat of rabies.
