Cat vaccinations are essential to keep your cat protected against diseases like cat flu and enteritis. If they are indoor cats, they will need the core vaccines cat flu and enteritis, as both these can be tranmitted by owners, but they won't need Feline Leukaemia (FeLV) vaccination, as this is passed from cat to cat via cat saliva, usually due to a cat bite or sharing food bowls.
However, all too often especially in the warmer weather, cats will make a bid for freedom - for example, through an open window, like the cat shown below - so they will potentially contact other cats while outside.
Also, if you have a stray or feral cat coming in through your cat flap and eating your cat's food, this will also pose a risk to your cat. The best way to prevent this is by installing a microchip operated cat flap.
