7th Rabies Case Confirmed in Pleasantville Cat

A stray cat from the 700 block of Wesley Avenue in Pleasantville has tested positive for rabies, becoming the seventh confirmed case of the viral disease in Atlantic County this year and the first case involving a cat. The cat was found with a wound of unknown origin and cared for by the Pleasantville residents. When the cat began displaying neurological symptoms, the residents took the cat to a veterinarian for medical care. The cat then tested positive for rabies on May 9. An investigation by the Division of Public Health found potential rabies exposure among the two residents and have advised them to contact their healthcare provider regarding post exposure rabies treatment. The county’s other rabies cases this year have involved a fox collected from Hamilton Township three skunks found in Egg Harbor Township ad two skunks collected from Northfield.
