How is rabies passed from body to body? **update**
We have neighbors that have been feeing a squirrel or two. The squirrel now climbs all over our porch as well. I do not want our cat (100% indoors) or anyone else in family to get it. Maybe i am being paranoid but i do not approve of feeding wildlife in apartment complexes.
Update : Found out today another neighbor has been attacked by a squirrel so that fear i had is not unfounded. They did call animal control and verified that squirrels do not usually carry rabies. Bf says the fleas on the animals carry rabies. I told him no, fleas carry bubonic plague LOL. Cat is 100% indoors so no worries about him getting sick unless the animal spits through screen window.
The squirrel tried to come into our apartment today but luckily ran off when my guy chased it away.
