Hey ya'll! Many of ya'll know that I have two cats, and now that Mike is making pretty good money we have a more or less stable income, so I want to go ahead and get my vaccines done for the kitties. They are less than a year but neither have been to a vet for normal reasons. 


But, we have plans to move to Hawaii (COVID permitting) within a year or so, and wanted to know if anyone has information not from Google like I've been looking at, about rabies vaccines, their intervals or what not to get them, what the heck is a FAVN antibody as to why Hawaii might want record of that and NOT a REFIT test. My cats are indoor cats, so I also want to make sure I'm not going to be paying for "recommended vaccines" I don't necessarily need. I'd also like to know a little bit about microchipping outside of you get a number and "helps you get them back".


Also, tips on finding a good vet?


Sorry if that's a lot of questions, but I've gone down an internet rabbit hole and am overwhelmed. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give (:

Is there anything on the Hawaii government website on what to do?  I remember my cousin was moving out of Hawaii a couple of years ago and it was a pretty big process getting the pets to Florida.

There's a .gov website, but there's tons of information with varying dates, so I have no idea what is the most up to date info D:

Rabies, FVRCP (feline respiratory virus vaccine) and feline leukemia(optional at my clinic, reccomended for outdoor cats and cats who go in and out. Hawaii is weird. We did a health certificate for a dog once. The Rabies vaccine had to be done twice-three times before it could get moved down there.

Yeah, from what I've read they want the distemper, chlaymidia (?) microchip, and then they want a FAVN blood test I think so you've gotta be microchipped before that test, have at least two before the test, so that's 60 days right there, and then 30 for after the blood test. Health certificates however need to be done 14 days before arrival, but only for the Oahu island, another 30 days to go to the other islands. If I get a job this school year I might have to pay like a grand per cat to have them quarantine there. It's so complicated 🙄
