When you do, get the 3-yr rabies; my vet says there's no longer of any
danger as there used to be.

Figure the chances of something biting her and that the something might be
rabid and might pass that on to her vs possible issues with the vaccine.
Remembering of course that she is young and compromised as is.

Good point.

All this talk about vaccinations made me think about my FeLV + kitten.  I
hadn't even thought about it until today but she's old enough for a rabies
shot.  She's about four and a half months old right now.  Do you think I
should get one for her?  She does go into my backyard but I have a cat fence
and she can't get out.  It's possible she could get bitten by something in
the yard I guess, but not likely.  I guess I should get a rabies shot for
her just in case.  What do you guys think?  I know legally I'm supposed to
but I'm not worried about that right now, I just don't want to give her
unnecessary vaccinations.  Maybe I'll just wait until she's about 6 months
old.

Some vets seem to think enforcing a law that puts the burden of vaccination
on the owner is the vets responsibility....not so.

My daughter took her cat to the vet in Ohio to get dental work done. The cat
is 13, was bottle raised by her, and has NEVER set foot outside. He has no
idea what "outside" is. Yet, they informed her that they would not touch her
cat without giving him a rabies vaccine. It is strictly a county law. The
next county over didn't require a rabies shot. So, she text me from the vet
and said "I lied, I told them he had a rabies shot". They let it go at that,
thankfully. My daughter was trying to do what she could to keep him from an
unnecessary vaccination. And, it worked!!

However, if a cat is strictly indoors, one can easily get away with not
giving them rabies vaccines.who would know?
