3 Treated for Rabies After Exposure to Rabid Cat

Three people are getting medical treatment after being exposed to a rabid cat at a western Pennsylvania animal shelter.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Thursday the cat had been at the Washington Area Humane Society Shelter since May but didn't become sick until this month.

Health officials are asking anyone who was in contact with the orange and white cat since late November to contact them.

Those who may have been bitten or scratched, or come in contact with the cat's bodily fluids, should seek medical care.

The cat was segregated and health officials notified after it became sickened on Dec. 4.
