All cats and kittens should be vaccinated using a multi-vaccine that provides protection against feline rhinotracheitis, feline panleukopenia, feline calicivirus, feline pneumonitis (Chlamydophilia psittaci) and feline leukaemia.
At 9 weeks-old kittens should have their first vaccination and need to be taken for their second vaccination 3-4 weeks later. (Kittens adopted from TCR will already have received these.)
Cats need a booster every year. Some vets now operate a ‘vax for life’ option – ask your vet about this as it is very cost-effective over the lifetime of a cat.
Cats need to be fully up-to-date with their vaccinations if you plan to use a cattery for any reason, for instance, holidays.
