DOVER, Del. (AP) - Health officials say a cat living at the Kings Cliff Mobile Home Park in Dover has tested positive for rabies.

The Division of Public Health said Thursday that it has recommended that three people undergo post-exposure treatment to prevent rabies. Officials have been going door to door in the neighborhood, handing out flyers to alert residents.

The rabid cat was a calico female, a mix of yellow, brown, black and gray fur.

The Division of Public Health reminds residents that Delaware law requires that all cats, dogs, and ferrets over the age of 6 months be vaccinated against rabies.
