I cannot imagine having & uneutered cat in my house. The smell would get untolerable as they mature. I've always fixed my FeLV cats. The syress on them has to be worse than the surgery. I would not vaccinate for FVRCP. My one cat spiraled down hill quickly after the vaccine & I've heard of othrs having the same problem. I would have the CBC done 1st.
