R.I. warns of possible rabid cat from Mass.

Environmental officials are warning that there may be a rabid cat roaming North Smithfield after it escaped when its owner brought the animal from Massachusetts while it was under quarantine. The Department of Environmental Management said Wednesday that the cat is a 12½-pound orange tabby. They said the cat had not been vaccinated for rabies and sustained a wound from an unknown cause. It bit someone in Massachusetts and was put into quarantine.
