Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, I can help you with your question today.
Was your kitten vaccinated for rabies?
OK. Then we have to consider rabies in any cases that showed neurologic signs - which your kitten did. I highly recommend contacting your local animal control officer to have him tested. If your family was exposed to a rabid animal, you will all need treatment to protect you.
It's definitely possible.
