"Symptoms of rabies may vary widely from animal to animal. In any animal, the first sign of rabies is usually a change in behavior. The animal becomes either unnaturally withdrawn or unnaturally approachable.

In the "furious" form, the animal is excited, aggressive, irritable, and may snap at anything in its path. It loses all caution and fear of natural enemies. If the animal has the "dumb" form of the disease, it may appear unusually tame, affectionate, and friendly. Staggering, paralysis, and frothing at the mouth are sometimes noticed. Many animals have a change in the sound of their voice."

Look, if you are concerned that your cat or dog has rabies, the first thing you need to do is take them to a vet for bloodwork.  If they DO have rabies, you have been exposed to it, and need to find out so that YOU can get vaccinated as well.  Do not handle an animal that you suspect has rabies.  Just to show you how serious it is when a HUMAN contracts rabies, I give you the following link.  (Not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach, this depicts a child that has been infected with rabies....by the time that any human or animal shows symptoms, it is TOO LATE.)
