We will be posting a breaking news in the next few minutes about a serious rabies problem in Cleveland County.
There is a missing black kitten with white paws and a white triangle under its neck which was given away in August at a yard sale at 855. E. Stagecoach Trail.
The man who bought the cat said he lived 5 miles east of that location and that he bought the cat for his brother's farm.
The cat's name was Socks.
Today, it was confirmed that one of Socks' siblings had rabies and has exposed at least 14 people.
The Health Department is urgently trying to locate Socks for fear that it has rabies and other humans or animals have been exposed.
If you know ANYTHING about this situation, please call the Health Department (484-5200), the Animal Shelter (481-9884) or county communications (484-4822).
And please pass along this message to as many people as you can.
