I just happen to be sitting at work (a feline only vet hosp) reading this Forum. We tell all our clients to expect any cats or kittens that receive vaccines to be lethargic for up to 48 hours. Vaccines can cause an elivation in a cats body temperature which like in us causes us not to feel so good. If you see any vomiting or the letheragy last longer then 48 hours contact your vet. You are not alone in reaction I talk to clients all day that see this. It is normal.

Sending calm vibes and soft should rubs. Some kits have different reactions to shots, most of the time they just want to sleep.

If they are not eating or better tomorrow, just give your vet a call and see what the advice is.

KittenKiya's Clan sends soft headbuts and healing licks.

I can imagine it can be the same as with human babies. My son sleeps all day after getting his shots, its actually pitiful, but by the next day he is doing much better. Maybe its a natural response to the pain?

But Im glad your babies are doing much better!

I'm glad your babies are better--I can understand why you were upset. It's quite normal for this to happen--my vet always tells me that when they've had vaccinations or surgery. I have a funny story to tell: Jasmime (my Maine Coon with an attitude) recently had to have 2 teeth pulled--she's getting old. The vet told me, "She probably won't be interested in food for a day or so, due to the anesthesia and the surgery." Well, when I took Jasmine home, and placed her carrier on the floor of the living room, she was out of the carrier in a flash, headed straight (though in a wobbly line, shall we say) for the cat food bowls in the kitchen! I've never seen her chow down that way before or since!
