we're pretty sure one our kittens has rabies. it was foaming at the mouth and walking kind of weird. i haven't really been watching it, since i'd rather not get too attached to it when i have to kill it, but my sister's convinced that it's not really rabies that it has. all we know is that it was (idk if it still is) foaming at the mouth and walking weird. we have it in a box now. we tried giving it water, and it wouldn't take it, but it didn't act scared as far as i know. we're most likely going to kill it within an hour at the latest, but i want to know if there's other diseases it could have, other than rabies, that would cause it to foam at the mouth.

why the hell are oyu asking UG? take it to a vet


edit: one of our cats once got cat-AIDS or something, foaming at the mouth and a lot of swetting, the horny little bugger

well, my dad refuses to take a cat to the vet for anything, and i have to say i agree with him. i wouldn't waste money on a cat. and if it does have rabies, we have to pay them to put it to sleep. a shotgun to the head doesn't cost anything.

EDIT: i lied. if i had a cat that lived inside with me, i would take it to a vet if it got sick, but if it had rabies, i wouldn't bother. i'd kill it.

Err consult a vet?

If u kill a kitten before doing that it will haunt you forever.

Cause kittens are just too cute. And u'll get aids if u kill one

When I was a kid I asked my parents "where do rabies come from?" Never got a good answer. And that's the story of how my dog died. (This entire story was a lie, I never even had a dog.)
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Let it bite you.. If you get real sick and die, the kitten probably had rabies.

Alternatively, you can let it bite you, and if you start trying to attack your family, then it's probably okay to put it to sleep.

well someones a ****ing sick bastard aren't we?

edit: i kind of hope you gets da rabeez, seeing as your going to kill a defenseless (to some extent) cat, also, a shot gun shell does cost money so does a shotgun, i think taking it to a vet would be the best idea

consult a vet you mean b*****d and find out if it needs to die. if they say yes, tell them you're willing to do it yourself if you don't want to have it professionally done.

Foaming at the mouth is a good indication of rabies and disorientation is aswell along with dehydration. Did the kitten ever get bit by something. The only way for it to be born with rabies is if the mother has the virus as well. If thats the case, you must dispose of the entire litter and the mother. I was bitten by a fox that had rabbies and i was given the treatment for it and the doctors hoped to god i didnt get the virus so my advice is to get rid of it you dont want to have to go through what i had to go through. Dont use a shotgun either, holy **** are you that bad of a shot? use a .22 or something that wont splatter the poor thing.

lol. well actually, i have no clue what gun i'd be using. until recently, he was always the one that did stuff like this. ummm, the kitten's a few months old, and the mother, other than having been really skinny since she gave birth, doesn't seem unhealthy at all.

my sister got bitten by a ferret one time, and we took it to the doctor with us to see if it had rabies. it didn't, but we were required by law to take care of the ferret for some long period of time; i'm not sure why, i guess to make sure it wasn't diseased. even though we were required to keep it, we had to pay the government to keep it, and we had to feed it ourselves. my dad just killed it with a pitchfork after a few weeks, buried it, and said that it had gotten away.

Quote by Potato_Souffle
Can I ask the obvious question? If it is rabies, how did the kitten get it? Did you see some bite marks on the kitten?

But, yes, there are other sicknesses that cause foaming at the mouth and an off kilter walk. (A simple google search could have told you that.)

what diseases?

i haven't seen any bite marks; idk why i didn't think of that, but when i saw someone else mention that, i realized that it might not have rabies. my parents aren't sure now either, cause they've been outside watching it, and it seems fine so far. we might wait a few days or something, idk what mi padre's planning on doing.

well, actually, i don't take care of them at all. they belong to my sisters. also, no. imo, i shouldn't burn in hell. i don't believe that there is anything wrong at all with me killing the kitten. killing an animal is not a crime.

a couple of wild untamed cats took residence out our house. And one of the damn ones keeps running away whenever we try to catch it to get it spayed. We've had to kill like 2 batches of kittens now.

5 cats are enough :-/

then just shoot it.

i seem like i hate animals now but that's what i'd do, if i had that problem.

there are people in the world (no one i know) that i would rather shoot than my dog, if that does anything for me at all.

did you take your kitten to be vaccinated

if you did. then it was probably given a jab against that, has it actually been outside?
WHATEVER YOU DO
DONT LET IT BITE OR SCRATCH YOU


This is what i found here : http://www.kittens-lair.net/cat-health/the-danger-of-rabies.html
Symptoms

After coming in contact with the virus, the bitten animal may go through one or all of several stages. If the bitten animal is a skunk it may not show any symptoms at all but could become a lifelong carrier. With most animals, however, the virus will spread through the nerves of the bitten animal towards the brain. The virus is relatively slow moving and the average time of incubation from exposure to brain involvement is between 3 to 8 weeks in dogs, 2 to 6 weeks in cats, and 3 to 6 weeks in people. However, incubation periods as long as 6 months in dogs and 12 months in people have been reported. After the virus reaches the brain it then will move to the salivary glands where it can be spread through a bite. After the virus reaches the brain the animal will show one, two, or all of the three different phases.

Prodromal phase

The first is the prodromal phase and usually lasts for 2-3 days in dogs. Apprehension, nervousness, anxiety, solitude, and a fever may be noted. Friendly animals may become shy or irritable and may snap, whereas, aggressive animals may become affectionate and docile. Most animals will constantly lick the site of the bite. In cats, the prodromal phase lasts for only 1-2 days and they usually develop more fever spikes and erratic behavior than dogs.

Furious phase

From the prodromal phase, animals may enter the furious stage; cats are particularly prone to developing this phase. The furious stage of the disease in dogs usually lasts for 1 to 7 days. Animals become restless and irritable and are hyperresponsive to auditory and visual stimuli. As they become more restless, they begin to roam and become more irritable and vicious. When caged, dogs may bite and attack their enclosures. Animals progress to become disoriented and then have seizures and eventually die.

Paralytic (dumb) phase

Animals may develop the paralytic phase either after the prodromal or furious stage. The paralytic phase usually develops within 2 to 4 days after the first signs are noted. Nerves affecting the head and throat are the first to be involved and animals may begin to salivate as a result of their inability to swallow. Deep labored breathing and a dropped jaw may result as the diaphragm and face muscles become increasingly paralyzed. Animals may make a choking sound and many owners think that there is something lodged in the dog's throat.

nope, we just vaccinate our dog. our cats/kittens have never been inside. no one's been bitten; right when we noticed something was wrong with it, we stuck it in the cage. he's just sitting in there crying now.
