    My cat is about 7-10days away from having her litter but as we live in Germany she is due her rabies vaccination then bloods a month later (so we can return to the UK) but I'm unsure on when she can have it, do I have to wait until the kittens are weaned or can she have it once she's given birth (she is up to date on vaccinations and is microchipped)

    i'm not sure... better to ask your vet.

    When are you planning on returning? will the kittens be weaned and in homes (minimum 8 weeks but preferably 12), or are you planning on bringing the kittens with you? As far as i am aware they need their own pet passports too?

    I think you have to wait until the kittens are weaned but you should ask your vet.

    Ah, just seen that you have.

    according to wellvet, rabies vaccine is not suitable to be given to pregnant or lactating girls. You would need to wait until her milk has dried up before you vaccinate her x
