• I recently purchased a cat condo so my cat can lounge outside on my balcony. Should He now recieve the vaccine for the outdoors? He will not be wondering or go outside of the condo or be with other animals.

    Hi Claire, I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this. The risk of contracting any diseases will depend on the risk of your pet escaping the balcony and the risk of exposure to other cats. Your vet knows your local area and can talk to you about the risk to your cat and if the vaccines are recommended for him.
