By the time she reaches eight weeks old, your kitten should see the veterinarian to begin a series of vaccinations. All kittens should receive vaccines for rabies, upper respiratory infections and distemper. If any cats in your home spend time outdoors, you should also have your kitten vaccinated against the feline leukemia virus.
There are other vaccinations available that your kitten may or may not need, depending on risk of infection, living situation and level of exposure to other cats. Discuss your kitten’s lifestyle with your vet, who will decide if any additional shots are necessary.
