I think that sounds like a well-informed decision, taking into account the 
unique factors of your household.  I think that is all we are really looking 
for people to with the new vaccination info we are learning more about each day 
anyway-- to just be more informed and not just go instantly with what a vet 
says and to take the individual needs and circumstances of the cat, and it's 
household, into consideration.  
So, kudos to you Lynne!  You are doing right by BooBoo.

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 again.  He doesn't want to anyway, not even 
into the patio for some fresh air.  It's too cold and mostly he sleeps.  He may 
want to in the spring but he isn't going to be subjected to any animal with 
diseases.  Our 19 year old wants nothing to do with him and by choice they 
spend their time in different parts of the house with their own litter boxes, 
food dishes etc.  I just don't want to take any risks with this little guy.  
The most I'm going to do is consider immuno regulin for him.  His vet is 
looking into it this week.

More vaccine info from the FIP group...caroline Hi all,>> I did notice on this 
list and general feline health lists that "fluboosters" can cause adverse 
reactions in cats and in some cases mighthave triggered FIP. Please ask your 
vet to report each adverse reactionas I'm pretty sure adverse reactions are 
under reported. Your vet shouldmake a note in your cat's medical file when your 
cat doesn't seem tosupport well some type/brand of vaccine.>> Please don't over 
vaccinate your cats and ask only for core vaccinesunless there is a good reason 
to use a non-core vaccine. Most corevaccines are effective for at least 3 years 
so it's not really necessaryto give a yearly vaccine. Remember that your vet 
should perform a healthcheck-up before vaccination and never vaccinate cats 
that don't seem tobe healthy.>> Here are some good links on vaccination and 
guidelines. After readingthose you might want to assess together with your vet 
which vaccinesyour cat really needs and how frequent your cat should get 
them.>>> http://www.fabcats.org/owners/vaccination/info.html>>
