Dead bat in kitchen? ?

The other morning my boyfriend found a bat in our downstairs kitchen dead. We have two cats and the bat didn't look like that the cats got to it. One was in our bedroom all night. I called the health department and they said to get the cats boosted for rabies and I did. But he said that since the bat wasn't found in the bedroom that it didn't need to go for testing.

We just don't know how the bat came in and the guy said that it might have come in with me when I came home late that night. I'm just concerned that it might have bite me and I don't know it. Are bats in new York usually carrying rabies? Please help me I'm driving myself nuts.

    Maybe it got into the rat baits.

    Trust me, if it bit you, you'd know it. You'd have a decent size bite mark for one.
