There is this friendly 'feral' cat that has been living around my home for several months now. I've been treating it as a 'pet' for quite some time now. But this cat tried to bite me (when i tried to push it into a shade to protect it from the rain) , and i pulled my hand away before it could bite.though there are NO bite wounds, some saliva might have been rubbed onto my skin. Well, my hand has no previous injuries - just a scar that I got from chickenpox months ago. is it possible that rabies can be transmitted form a lick ?
And, this animal (a female ) has been making a low whining and continuous sound (as if it is mourning). But, i have also seen other cats, possibly males, around it. Could this sound be an indicator of rabies ?? or is it just a mating call ??
