Take Great Care when Feeding your Cat Rabbit Meat — 8 Comments

  1. Just did a search on “Tularemia” and this is a bit more information, which indicates other ways it can be transmitted, besides wild animals:

    What Is Tularemia?
    Tularemia is an infectious disease that typically infects:

    wild rodents
    squirrels
    birds
    rabbits

    Humans can become infected by having direct contact with an infected animal or from “tick, mosquito, or deer fly bites”. The disease is caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis. It can be life-threatening.

  2. I appreciate knowing this, and will share on FB. I imagine that rabbit sold in markets are not wild, but farm raised, so I don’t think that’s a concern. Or rabbit in canned cat food, which I see on rare occasion.
