Hi, Your kitten will need two vaccinations against cat flu and enteritis 2 - 3 weeks apart. For the pet passport scheme he will need to microchipped and rabies vaccinated. If you are preparing him for entry to the U.K. it is best to have two rabies vaccinations 3 weeks apart and then 3 weeks after that blood is taken for the rabies antibody titre test. You then count 6 months from the date of positive test before the pet is eligible to travel to the U.K. The reason it is advisable to have 2 rabies vaccs is that there is no EU licensed lab on Cyprus at present so the blood test has to be sent abroad which is quite expensive.

Six months is the normal age for neutering and 50 euros is a really good price. We have just paid 70 euros to have one of ours done.
