Can be bitten by cat also infect rabies?

       Although the cat is very quiet and docile, once irritated the cat, it will use its sharp teeth and nails to attack you. Once you get hurt by a cat, you will inevitably bleed. The problem is that in many people’s minds, only being bitten by a dog can cause rabies. So can be bitten by cat rabies? Dogs, cats and mice belong to a chain of up and down transmission. If the sick rabies bites the cat and the bitten cat bites the mouse, the rabies virus will spread among the three animals. Once the cat or mouse infected with rabies attacks human beings, even if there is only a slight scratch, people can be infected with rabies. If someone is bitten or scratched by a cat, three emergency measures should be taken immediately: Step 1: rinse the wound. Immediately wash the wound with flowing water, wash away the virus as much as possible, and squeeze the blood out. If possible, it is best to rinse with 20% soapy water for 20-30 minutes. Then disinfect with iodine wine, then wash out the iodine wine with alcohol, and repeat for 3 times. Step 2: go to the local epidemic prevention department for vaccination immediately. Never delay for a few days. The incubation period of rabies is short about 10 days, and the long incubation period may take several years. Step 3: if the wound is bitten seriously, be sure to inject antiviral serum and use it together with the vaccine. Antiviral serum must be tested under the guidance of doctors.
