    You need to get over your obsession with rabies. Your girlfriend's cat didn't have rabies. You won't get rabies from her (assuming she really exists). There hasn't been a single case of humans getting rabies from cats in the USA in 40 years.

    If her cat really had rabies health authorities would be administering vaccines. 

    Source(s): I have friends who had a horse get rabies and they needed to get shots.

    A bite or scratch can cause rabies.

    In the last twenty years, there was one single real case...so, don't worry.

    If you consider a vaccine (what I never would recommend), you should be sure that the person is infected...means: A BLOOD EXAMINATION! I would never get a vaccine voluntarily without any kind of test - especially for rabies or tetanus.
