Cats do not generally spread rabies, and rabies shots are required for owners across the country. They are given to shelter cats and at trap-neuter-return clinics. CDC statistics show that wild animals, including raccoons, foxes, and rodents, accounted for 92 percent of the 6,000-plus rabies cases identified in animals in 2010. Domestic pets accounted for the other eight percent, and while cases in cats did increase from 2009, it was by one percent. Among humans, two cases were reported.
