Why do I have to give a rabies vaccine to my cat that only stays inside?

Why do I have to give a rabies vaccine to my cat that only stays inside?

North Carolina state law requires all cats and dogs over 4 months of age to be current on their rabies vaccinations. The law is strict due to the fatal and zoonotic (able to be spread from animals to humans) nature of the disease. In North Carolina, rabies is primarily carried by raccoons, bats, skunks, and foxes.
