So, I had a puppy foster that ended up dying of rabies. We found her in a parking lot with her siblings - she was probably infected by a rabid bat (Dept of Health thinks anything larger would've just killed the puppy) and the rabies didn't surface till a month after we had her. I had to get the post-exposure, along with the 15 other dog daycare employees since she was fostered through my work at the time and came to work with me. I hope you didn't get the post exposure vaccination before hearing the results. You'll hear in a week and even if the cat is rabid, you'll still be okay. The post-exposure was covered by workman's comp but it was $8,000 a person.
