Getting null point exception when running BaseRecalibrator

Hi all, I am running this command in 4.0.3.0:

java -jar gatk-package.jar BaseRecalibrator -R RefGenomes/Felis_catus_new8.fna -I DS05061.bam -O DS05061.table --known-sites RefGenomes/felis_catus.vcf

and am getting this error:
Set the system property GATK_STACKTRACE_ON_USER_EXCEPTION (--java-options '-DGATK_STACKTRACE_ON_USER_EXCEPTION=true') to print the stack trace.
