    Hi there, I'm new to this community so hello !
    I have recently gained a new member to the family, a 12 week old kitten called Denny. He belonged to a friend of a friend who's cat had 'accidentally' got pregnant and they were going to give him to a shelter, but I couldn't bare the thought of him being in a place like that so I offered to take him in.

    I was inquiring as to how much starter cat vaccinations are these day as my family have a very low income and I am currently unemployed [damn recession !] and we're debating whether or not we can afford to keep Denny, and obviously we're quite attached to him so it would be heart breaking !
    Are there any charities or services that offer cheaper//free services that help people with a low income ?

    Thanks
    Rosie xx

    Hey there. Welcome tot he forums :)
    I would phone around local vets and find out their pricing because every vet has different prices. The vet im with its about 30 per vacc. and the vaccs are 3 weeks (4 weeks at the most) appart.

    As for the future when you go castrate him you can call cats protection as they give vouchers to some people which will give you money off for his castration.

    Hope this is some help to you

    where abouts was that ?

    Thanks for the advice everybody, I phoned a couple of local vets last night, and the price does seem to be between £40-£45. I'm waiting to hear back from the PDSA as to whether I'm eligible for free vaccinations. Does anyone know if it's a specific type of RSPCA centre that helps out ? Does it have to be a hospital ?

    Cheers :)
