People power saves a pharmacy cat from going into quarantine after scratching a boy — 7 Comments

  1. More than likely Porsche is a victim of bearing false witness. My experience would suggest the possibility that the boy never came in contact with Porsce’s claws, instead did something bad, and lied to the mother about the incident. It’s happened more than once to people I know.

  2. So what you are saying is, the cat was quarantined anyway. But if the cat doesn’t die from rabies in 10 days, then it’s still safe to be around other people? Do you frequently ignore reality in favor of cats’ lives over human lives? Knowing full-well (because you’ve been told on many many occasions), that the incubation period for rabies is (on average) 21 to 240 days, sometimes up to 11 months, one rare case being 6 years. How does a 10-day quarantine confirm that the cat is not harboring rabies and is now safe to be around other humans for the next 6 to 11 months? Please explain your obvious lack of any connection to reality and the real world any any semblance of a visible education. We’d all love to hear this. Perhaps you might finally get some of your now-gone readership back if you can explain your criminally-irresponsible and outlandishly biased misinformation that you relentlessly spew to the world. Though I’m hoping it is seriously too late for that, and most likely is.

    • I have referred to a Hong Kong ordinance and their rules. Insult them please ;

      And here’s a quote from CDC:

      “If you were bitten by a cat, dog, or ferret that appeared healthy at the time you were bitten, it can be confined by its owner for 10 days and observed. No anti-rabies prophylaxis is needed. No person in the United States has ever contracted rabies from a dog, cat or ferret held in quarantine for 10 days.

      If a dog, cat, or ferret appeared ill at the time it bit you or becomes ill during the 10 day quarantine, it should be evaluated by a veterinarian for signs of rabies and you should seek medical advice about the need for anti-rabies prophylaxis.”

      • You know fully well that that statement biasedly taken out of context only means the animal could not transmit rabies during the last 10 days before it dies from rabies. It DOES NOT mean that the animal is still not carrying rabies and can transmit rabies anytime during the next 6 to 11 months (or more). This can only be confirmed by an animal’s rabies-vaccination history and a history of having never been exposed to the virus. Even an animal that is fully vaccinated, if exposed to another possible rabies carrier; MUST by all international pet-trade, import/export, and animal-transport laws; be quarantined for no less than 6 months to be certain that that vaccinated animal has not developed the live rabies virus due to a vaccination that lost its effectiveness or never was effective.

        See, this is why everyone has left your site in droves. You’re like a terminally ignorant rabies carrier spreading deadly misinformation to them and their at-risk animals, someone they are trying to avoid to save their and their animals’ very lives. Good for them. At least they are much more intelligent and responsible than you’ve ever been during your useless and criminally irresponsible misinformation-spewing life.

    • Praying that Porsche will remain safe. I think that the store owner acted wisely and thank goodness quickly. That customer was a bit over the top. Besides, a well cared for shop cat is not going to have rabies. I am happy to hear that more than 70,000 supporters stepped up in support of Porsche and her guardian.
