Confused

Recently while washing my eyes and mouth with water which was in a bucket and was kept in lawn. After washing I saw a cat roaming there and felt that what if it had contaminated the bucket water. Should I need a rabies vaccine or I should seek a professional regarding my fear. Please help

Rabies isn't really transmitted that way.  As you can see, it requires direct contact: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/rabies/symptoms-causes/syc-20351821

If you find yourself fearing situations like this frequently, you probably should speak to a mental health professional.
