(Insert Larry the Cable Guy Voice) “You Ever Been To The Walmart???” Ok, now that the initial corniness albeit filthy rich corniness is over seriously imagine going into your local Walmart and in the parking people are giving away free cute little innocent baby kittens. Now you take the kittens home, an incident occurs and then you find out your kittens have rabies.
Yes all of this happened outside of a Walmart in McDonough, Georgia. A man took one of the six kittens who were in the litter, an orange tabby to his family and after a week the kitten began to act sick. The man took the cat to the veterinarian and then after bringing the cat back home it scratched his wife. That prompted a mandatory 10-day quarantine (Under Georgia law) and a bite report to the animal control office.
There’s more when the man had taken the cat to the vet, the vet told him that the cat was lethargic and wouldn’t live 10 days (that’s when you hope the kids aint got attached to the kitten). So sadly but evidently the kitten died and test were ran on it and came positive back for rabies.
Now Henry County, Georgia officials say that they are 99% sure that all of the other kittens in the litter had rabies as well and need to get all of the kittens back as well as anyone who has come in contact with them and even the two women who were passing them out. Because in case you didn’t know Rabies is a deadly virus if not treated and we all remember the Stephen King movie “CUJO” don’t we?
But if anything the real lesson that we have learned and mainly men especially since a man got the kitten is…….all cute cuddly and free pussy aint safe healthy non infected pussy…..we’re talking bout the kittens right????
