MINOT, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota health officials say a rabid kitten purchased at a Minot pet store was the sole cat in the litter with the disease.

Health officials say the rabid cat was sold at Amy’s Pet Parade last month and was part of a litter of six that was anonymously dropped off.

Officials say the remaining five kittens were located and have tested negative for rabies.

Rabies is a viral infection that can be transmitted through bites and saliva exposure to open cuts and wounds, eyes or mouth. It causes swelling of the brain and can be fatal.
