mY hARLEY OFF AND ON CATCHES MOLES, SCREWS AND MICE because we do have 
invasions of mice in cold weather so I guess I should get him vacinnated for 
Rabies.  The others just go out and sit on the deck, Harley is my mouser, 
anything that moves is prey including my toes under the cover.

curious about this assertion that all have died within a week??  If that 
were a general outcome I think more of us would have heard about it ( we 
have spayed and neutered 10 cats at the shelter where I volunteer in the 
last year and none have died....likewise with innoculations)....   I 
wanted my boy to have his rabies Vaccination because he periodically 
catches mice that manage to find their way into my second floor condo 
AND because it is illegal to not do so in NYS ( some vets will refuse to 
see cats that have not had rabies vaccination)...  I held off on the 
PanLeuk booster... Instead did a Titre ( 111.00 for the Titre!!!!  would 
have been a LOT cheaper to vaccinate)... but vet now says he's good for 
at least 3 years...
I really don't like the idea of not spaying or neutering FeLV cats...  
one unfortunate unintended pregnancy could add several positive unwanted 
kittens to the population and that would be just too sad....  Life is so 
seldom happy for FeLV kitties..... our cats are the exception rather 
than the rule...
