What can happen if you don't vaccinate your cat?

Missing a vaccination or booster If your puppy or kitten is more than 2 weeks late for booster vaccination, their immune system will no longer be as active, and this means that there will be less of an immune response from the subsequent vaccination.

Do you need to vaccinate a house cat?

Can a cat recover from renal failure?
