I HAVE a threemonthold cat and I am wondering what vaccines do they need. Are they given all at once or spread out months apart?

BRIAN replies: Cats are vaccinated against feline herpes virus, feline calicivirus, feline panleucopenia and feline leukaemia virus. The first two together cause cat flu. The second fatal diarrhoea and the fourth cancer. Injections normally start at nine weeks old and are three weeks apart. Viruses are spread from cat to cat with any exchange of fluids - even hissing.
