I have an indoor cat that has 4 paws declawed; she never goes out. Does she still need a rabies shot?

I have another cat that stays outdoors and I know she needs a rabies shot. She only comes in to eat. They're both spayed.

I take them every year. Even tho she never comes in contact with stray cats, she will bite sometimes just playing. To be on the safe side, I will keep having her vaccinated.

Rabies doesn't just come out of nothing, they must contract it from something that has it -

Yes , if you ever have to take her to the vets, they will do nothing till
She has the rabies shot,,
And if she happened to bite someone
And animal control is called
You will have to jump through many
Hoops, that you don't want to have
To go through .
It's far far cheaper to just get her the shot, the humane society will do it
For less then a vet will .

Ps
Why o why would you ever
D claw all four paws?
The cat can't ever scratch herself '
I had a 14 year old male with his front
Paws d clawed- and I would never
D claw a cat. ( he was d clawed when I got him )
I have two males now, and it's easy
To make sure they stretch their claws
On their furniture - ( a cat perch )

Because she would scratch until she would be raw and bleed. I spent hundreds and hundreds of $$ and coban tape at the vets.It was a last resort. She was miserable and I was going broke.

Wow
Ok
My apology -
She prob had a skin condition
And the vet should had been able to determine that with a blood test,
Not sure why she was never properly
Diagnosed -
But hats off to you !
