An owner showed up at a general practice in Florida with a 4-week-old kitten in a box that she had found in a golf cart. She took the kitten home and let her children play with it. Her primary complaint was that the kitten violently bit her and her children. How would you handle this case? At the clinic, the veterinarian did not let her take the kitten out of the box. Instead, he advised her to call animal control immediately. Days later, it turned out that the kitten was positive for rabies. In this case, the veterinarian saved his staff from exposure to rabies.
