Date:7/1/2008

HARRISBURG, Pa., July 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Department of Health said today that a kitten dropped off last month at a farm in York County tested positive for rabies, and anyone who may have come into contact with the animal should call the local state health center.

The kitten, a black, short-haired female about eight- to 10-weeks-old, was abandoned on or around June 16 at the Fisher farm on Valley Road in Etters and tested positive for rabies on June 27. Another kitten, a black and gray tiger female, was also dropped off at the same time and is currently undergoing testing.

Health Department officials advise anyone who may have come in contact with these kittens, their littermates, or the mother cat, to call the York County State Health Center at (717) 771-4505 or the Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH.

Touching or handling a potentially rabid animal does not constitute exposure unless you have been bitten or scratched. Under these circumstances, you should seek medical attention immediately.

For more information, call the PA Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH. General information on rabies along with other diseases and illnesses is available at http://www.health.state.pa.us.
