Abstract: This cats vaccination related study was conducted directly at the Teaching and Training Pet Hospital and Research Center (TTPHRC) of CVASU, S. A. Quadery Teaching Veterinary Hospital (SAQTVH) of CVASU and Upazilla Veterinary Hospital (UVH), Patiya. Data was also collected through online forms. Because one of the most important measures in preventing and controlling cats’ infectious diseases is vaccination. So, it is important to evaluate owners' attitudes on cats’ vaccinations. The goal of the current study was to identify parameters that were related to the vaccination status of cats in Bangladesh and to determine respondents' attitudes toward vaccination guidelines . Among 1025 responses, a total of 843 questionnaires were statistically analyzed. In spite of the fact that 89% of the owners were aware that their cats were susceptible to infectious diseases, our survey revealed that only 54% of cats were found vaccinated. Therefore, it is clear that owners did not give their cats adequate attention. So, our cats were not protected against different infectious diseases. Along with other factors, the vaccination rate was also affected by issues such as high costs, long travel times, difficult transportation, inappropriate clinic hours, and lengthy waiting times etc. In order to increase cats’ protection against infectious diseases, owner’s awareness should be increased. As well as availability of the vaccine should be increased so that others negative factors such as high cost will be reduced. So, these kinds of necessary steps should be taken to ensure adequate vaccination to our cats. Keywords:
