Reminder on Pet Cats

With the recent news story on the rabid cat found near Disney property [“Cat with rabies triggers alert on Epcot Center Drive in Orange County, health officials say”] we want to remind residents that cats are not allowed to freely roam the neighborhood. For their protection and yours, please keep them indoors and make sure they are up to date on their shots.

Rabies can also affect your dogs. Make sure they are vaccinated as well, as rabies can be transmitted among other wild animals (such as bats, raccoons, and squirrels) that pets could come in contact with.

Here is the CDC information on rabies. Consult with your pets’ veterinary doctor if you have further questions on keeping your pet safe. You can also contact the Lake County Office of Animal Services at their web page to get further information.
