Does a cat's behavior change after a vaccination?

My cat went to the vet today and got a rabies shot, and how she's hiding under the bed.

Your cat is just probably scared. If she gets sick, though, she may be having a reaction to the shot which is rare.

She's probably stressed and/or tired. Vaccinations and a trip to the vet can sometimes do that. Leave her alone for the rest of the day & she'll probably be fine by morning. If not, call your vet.

It has nothing to do with the shot itself. Your cat's daily routine was interrupted by the stress of the visit and cats hate change. Let her stay under the bed and come out at her own will.

Yes, but only temporarily. With any new or painful experience, an animals behavior changes for a short while. When she comes out, show her care and affection, she'll be fine.
