Thanks Marlene for all this information.  I always have had our cats vaccinated 
but with BooBoo, I honestly don't think I'm going to have any done with him.  
He's between 4 and 6 years of age, has feline leukemia, is becoming anemic and 
will never step outside of a house again.  He doesn't want to anyway, not even 
into the patio for some fresh air.  It's too cold and mostly he sleeps.  He may 
want to in the spring but he isn't going to be subjected to any animal with 
diseases.  Our 19 year old wants nothing to do with him and by choice they 
spend their time in different parts of the house with their own litter boxes, 
food dishes etc.  I just don't want to take any risks with this little guy.  
The most I'm going to do is consider immuno regulin for him.  His vet is 
looking into it this week.

   Hi all,
  
   I did notice on this list and general feline health lists that flu
  boosters can cause adverse reactions in cats and in some cases might
  have triggered FIP. Please ask your vet to report each adverse reaction
  as I'm pretty sure adverse reactions are under reported. Your vet should
  make a note in your cat's medical file when your cat doesn't seem to
  support well some type/brand of vaccine.
  
   Please don't over vaccinate your cats and ask only for core vaccines
  unless there is a good reason to use a non-core vaccine. Most core
  vaccines are effective for at least 3 years so it's not really necessary
  to give a yearly vaccine. Remember that your vet should perform a health
  check-up before vaccination and never vaccinate cats that don't seem to
  be healthy.
  
   Here are some good links on vaccination and guidelines. After reading
  those you might want to assess together with your vet which vaccines
  your cat really needs and how frequent your cat should get them.

I put  a couple out for an outside cat (his choice, not mine) when it  
was close to zero.  They stayed warm for 8 hours..not hot but  
enough to keep him comfortable in the shelter I provided for  
him..Don't even ask about the better shelters offered.  Cats
