Consider getting a Snuggle Safe (microwavable gel disk that holds heat

Thanks Marlene for all this information. I always have had our cats
vaccinated but with BooBoo, I honestly don't think I'm going to have
any done with him. He's between 4 and 6 years of age, has feline
leukemia, is becoming anemic and will never step outside of a house

diseases. Our 19 year old wants nothing to do with him and by

support well some type/brand of vaccine.

unless there is a good reason to use a non-core vaccine. Most core
vaccines are effective for at least 3 years so it's not really
to give a yearly vaccine. Remember that your vet should perform a
check-up before vaccination and never vaccinate cats that don't seem
