A Kershaw County mother and two of her children are under a physician’s care after being exposed to a cat that tested positive for rabies. According to Sue Ferguson with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s (DHEC) Bureau of Environmental Health, a woman in a rural part of the county north of Camden found a kitten under her vehicle June 16. She and two of her children were scratched while handling the kitten, which was later found to have the rabies virus.
