Its probably less likely my girls would come in contact with bats as they are indoor only kitties and this is a fairly new well built home. I've never seen bats in this area, but they usually come out after dark don't they....
This from the health dept web site:
In California, bats, skunks and foxes are the wild animals most likely to test positive for rabies. Coyotes, raccoons and opossums can also transmit rabies. Occasionally, domestic animals such as cats, dogs, rabbits and horses, cattle, goats and sheep can be infected with the rabies virus. Small rodents, such as squirrels, rats, mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils and chipmunks are seldom infected with rabies.
I have seen skunks and racoons around here, not near the house, but I saw racoons in the park across the street. My husband got chased by a skunk when he lived in santa cruz. It was next to the garbage can and he was taking ot the garbage...skinned his knee running up and tripping on the deck to get away!
