According to my vet, cats with compromised immune systems should NOT be
vaccinated; he also refuses to vaccinate cats that are sick and/or running a
fever....Since the FVRCP should last a lifetime, and rabies cannot be
brought into the house, I would seriously think about not doing it.
If a cat doesn't go outside, even if the state requires rabies vaccines, you
don't have to do it (they don't knoow that you have a cat) - unless you
operate a rescue facility as I do.

I would get a second opinion on vaccinating your cats on a regular basis,
other then rabies, because even you can bring in a disease that can make
your cat sick. Especially cats who are Felv + need their yearly booster to
prevent them from getting sick. They might not be able to fight a simple
infection, because of their weak immune system.
