Jefferson County Public Health Service confirmed a feral cat in the city of Watertown tested positive for rabies Monday.

The cat was the fourth animal in the county that tested positive for rabies since May 21. The first three incidents involved raccoons in the towns of Worth, Adams and LeRay.

The Public Health Service is encouraging anyone bitten by the orange tabby cat, which was near the East Hills housing complex, off Eastern Boulevard, to call the agency at 786-3720.
