What are cats vaccinated against
All cats are vaccinated against three diseases:
Feline Leukemia (FeLV)
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)
Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)
What vaccines do my pets receive?
Most cats receive a combination of the three vaccines and are vaccinated every six months. Some cats are vaccinated against FeLV and FIV, and are not required to be revaccinated every year.
How can Feline Leukemia (FeLV) be spread?
The virus is spread through direct contact with the blood or body fluids (saliva, urine, feces) of infected cats. The cat's blood and body fluids may remain infectious for up to 12 weeks after the cat has recovered.
How can Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) be spread?
How can Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) be spread?
What is the advantage of vaccinating against FeLV and FIV?
Vaccinating cats against FeLV and FIV protects them against possible infections and decreases the chances of transmitting the disease from one cat to another.
Why should I vaccinate my cat against FIP?
FIP can be spread through direct contact with the blood or body fluids (saliva, urine, feces) of infected cats. The cat's blood and body fluids may remain infectious for up to 12 weeks after the cat has recovered.
Can my cat become immune to FeLV and FIV?
Your cat may be protected against these diseases by natural immunity if he has been exposed to these specific viruses. However, it is impossible to give your cat an immunity that lasts forever.
What is "natural immunity?"
Natural immunity is the result of exposure to the virus that causes FIP or FeLV.
What is "acquired immunity?"
Acquired immunity is the result of vaccination. Vaccines are made of killed viruses, and the viruses cannot cause a disease. Therefore, vaccinated cats do not develop natural immunity to these diseases.
How can my cat be protected against FIP?
The best way to protect your cat against FIP is to vaccinate him.
What is the advantage of vaccinating against FIP?
FIP is another reason to vaccinate your cat.

Cats can see quite well in light levels as little as 1/6 of what is required for humans to see well. They accomplish this largely via a tapetum lucidum, which reflects light passed through the retina back into the eye. They also have exceptionally large pupils for their body size. Read more
You can buy these in natural colors, or in more vibrant "fashionable" colors. Claw caps will fall off naturally after about six weeks or so. So if you want to save money and avoid regular trips to the vet, it is worth it to buy some and see if you can put them on your cat yourself. Read more
