Yes, I know that but the dim wits who make the Animal Control laws in Texas
refuse to recognize it. A titer costs a whole lot of $$$ for that reason and
I'm not sure the authorities would even recognize it as sufficient. The vets
make money on the vaccinations every year. Why should they stop a good cash
cow (or cat)?

Can you get a titer instead of vaxing for rabies each (three) year(s) or does
your law not allow that?
Also, I'm sure you know that 1-year and 3-year rabies vax are the same contents
with different labels. And that experiments have shown the rabies vax lasts
at least 7 years, if not for life.

This is just an opinion stemming from a human experience with vaccinations. I
almost died from the whooping cough vaccination when I was 9 years old. Again,
when the Salk vaccine came out, my father, a physician gave me the anti-polio
vaccination. Now, I do approve of polio vaccinations since it's such a dread
disease and the vaccination did almost completely wipe it out in the USA.
However, the vaccine contained an error and some of the virus was not killed. I
got a mild case of polio and have had some minor nerve damage on my right side
ever since. It doesn't improve with age, either. So I do NOT vaccinate my
cats. Not with FeLv or FIV or anything but rabies (it's the law). I do have
to vaccinate with the FVRCP vaccine when I know that one of my rescues will be
going for adoption though. But I never vaccinate for leukemia. If you have
kittens who need the FVRCP for adoption, then you do it. But if you are
keeping them, I would
advise not to do it. And try not to get them vaccinated at the time that you
are getting the spay/neuter operation for a cat or dog. No medical doctor ever
gives a human patient a vaccination before surgery. It's terribly dangerous
and I really resent vets who do that to people's pets. However, sometimes you
need to get the rabies shot at the time of s/n surgery because you are using a
low cost clinic and you have a feral cat who can't be trapped twice. So you
have to do both at the same time. But ferals who are outside don't really need
any other vaccination once they are neutered/spayed.I also really resent the
new FIV vaccination that turns negative cats positive on tests and jeopardizes
their lives should they get lost and then tested by the person who finds them.
