There are some really stupid vets out there.  If you bring in a sick cat
that doesn't have an up-to-date rabies vaccine, many will insist that they
cannot treat a cat without one, and insist on vaccinating before treating
the sick cat.  My vet does NOT!  I know of one veterinary hospital that will
NOT treat any cat that has never been vaccinated!

It's very bad practice to vaccinate cats while they are having
surgery, but vets do it, so now I write out instructions not to
vaccinate, and put it on the cat's carrier when I bring them for
surgery.  I give my cats their PCRC, way before they have surgery,
but Rabies vaccinations are the law here, and only vets can give the
injections.  Once they are vaccinated I do not repeat vaccinations
annually, and I just ignore the postcards I get saying it's time to
vaccinate again.
