Can I get rabies from masturbating after touching blanket which I had touched with my leg I used to touch a cat ?

I have a cat which I used to caress with my leg. It is not like a rabies cat but it is not a domestic cat either. We just give food to it. But till now there has not been a sign of rabies in it. One night I touched the cat with my feet and went to bed and slept with a blanket,the leg touching the blanket and then in the middle of the night, I reversed the blanket position and then masturbated. Can I get rabies because I touched the blanket which my feet(which touched the cat) and then masturbated? Please help me.

Hi dear

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

It s unlikely you could get rabies this way.A scratch from the cat or dog carries the risk of getting rabies.If you need more information please ask us or mail me.

Take care.

hi
u dont need to worry
rabies spread from one to other by direct skin to skin contact only when skin is broken,means bleeding is there.
there is no chance of getting rabies in this style.
watch over cat,if she has no problem then ,no question is there.
