Health Officials Seek Anyone Who Had Contact with Rabid Cat

A gray domestic short-haired cat with what appeared to be an injured hind leg found in the Pike & Rose area has tested positive for rabies, according to a statement from Montgomery County government.

The cat was seen in the area of White Flint Station condominiums, near Rockville Pike and Old Georgetown Road.

Montgomery County public health officials would like to talk to anyone who may have had contact with the cat to discuss the type of contact and any future actions or treatments that may be needed. When left untreated, rabies is fatal in humans.

Please call the Department of Health and Human Services Disease Control Program at 240-777-1755 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. if you think you may have had contact.
