Kittens can be especially vulnerable to the effects of infectious diseases such as cat flu. They can receive some protection from their mother’s milk, if they have been vaccinated, however, once they come home with you, they will need their own protection.
Early vaccinations will stop your kitten getting seriously ill. They can start their vaccinations from 9 weeks old and will need a follow up course usually 2-4 weeks after the initial set.
It is important to remember that your kitten will not be protect until they complete the second course of vaccinations.
