Rabies is a rapidly progressive disease. It can be different in different animals, they can act vicious and mad, or just be depressed and quiet. It affects the brain; behavior is vastly altered, the animal stops eating, and is dead in no more than 10 days, usually less than a week.

If here symptoms started months ago, this could not be rabies.
