RABIES

My cat got badly bitten/attacked by an animal and has been getting treatment for the infection, he has gotten his rabies vaccines but he only got the 1st one of his recent series of rabies vaccines, he was due to get the 2nd one this week but they couldn't do it because of his high fever due to the infection. My question is, Can I get rabies from him because he just scratched me??? I know that he is protected because he has been vaccinated, but if the animal that bit him had rabies could my cat be carrying it, and therefore given it to me through the scratch???

I do not know as we are Rabies free in Australia but call up your doctor and ask him as soon as you can even though it might have to be done through their receptionist as they can ask for you.
Better to be safe than sorry ! DO IT NOW.
