Why do the rabies? I would do the fvrcp before the rabies and i won't so
either one. If your cat is not outside at all, which especially with being
positive i think not, and you don't have rabid animals around, again,
probably not the case, why on earth would you give a rabies shot to a
positive cat?  The law is ot going to be enforced in your home  it's not a
big deal, but over vaccinating a positive cat is a big deal. They have that
antibody problem of course and rabies vaccines are done to develop
antibodies.
