Booster shots will not be required until the kitten is one year old, unless it is to be shown, exposed to cats who are being shown, exposed to cats brought into the house for breeding, and/or exposed to outdoor cats. In these cases, it should receive booster shots at six-month intervals, to protect it from the stress of exposure to strange viruses.

If you plan on giving the currently available Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and/or Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) vaccines to your kitten, be aware that having had the FeLV and FIP series does NOT guarantee the kitten will be immune to FeLV and FIP; you must be just as careful about exposing the kitten to possible FeLV/FIP-positive cats as you would be if the shots had not been given. We do not recommend or give the FeLV or FIP vaccinations.

We do not use flea collars, first because their effectiveness is questionable and second, because flea collars can cause skin sores on long-haired cats, due to the concentration of poison around the neck. Rather, a good flea powder or spray, available from your vet, is a better solution to the problem of fleas. If your kitten never goes outdoors, this problem probably won't arise.

Congratulations on your new family member! This baby is a real sweetie, and we think you'll be very happy together. If you have any questions, please remember that we are available to provide help and answer questions.
