British singer Samantha Fox is being treated for rabies after she was bitten by a stray cat while on holiday in Thailand.
“I love animals, especially cats but over there they’re considered like rats and are left to fend for themselves,” dailystar.co.uk quoted Fox as saying.
“I ended up feeding a lot of them, giving them bits of shellfish after dinner. One was laying on my feet and I thought we were getting on really well. So I went to stroke him but he bit me so hard it went down to the bone,” she said.
Fox began treatment immediately at a clinic on the island and is still receiving regular injections ten days after returning from Thailand.
“The treatment makes you feel sick and horrible – really fluey and shaky,” she added.
