I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding vaccinations. I've already stopped giving the Rabies vaccine because it's unnecessary with both of the babies being inside only. But I was wondering if I should continue to get other vaccines, like the booster and leukemia vaccination?
What do you guys think?

Most sphynx owners do not give the Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) vaccination, giving that vaccination can void breeder contracts in most cases. Rabies is generally required by law in most states, check with your local authorities to verify. Odder things have happened, a bat can always find its way into the home unexpectedly or I hate to even say it, the kitty escapes from the home. It's not uncommon for most sphynx owners to get the rabies vaccine. Here is a good thread on vaccines
