My big white cat
has gotten into the habit of beating up other cats he runs across, and recent victim's caretaker reported the fight. (I guess my cat, Lumi, bit the other cat, but Lumi himself showed no sign of injury.)
Lumi got one rabies vaccine, but I didn't go for the second one since I saw recent research showing that one shot lasts at least 5-7 years, if not (usually) the lifetime of the animal.
So, Animal Control found me and said I need to quarantine for 45 days. No way would Lumi survive this (he's a rescue cat that was found living outside, and seems traumatized if he needs to be kept in even for a weekend).
Just wondering if anyone has experience / advice on how to deal with this situation. And secondarily, I'm looking for advice on whether it's a good idea to try to find the owners of the victim cat and work something out with them (e.g., so they don't re-report Lumi being out, if I ignore the order).
