Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

I understand your apprehension but would insist you not to worry. Since your cat is vaccinated, I do not expect any major illness. However, in the unlikely event that you see any problems with your child (such as vomiting, loose stools, or fever), we would need to deal with the issues accordingly.

Feel free to write back.
