A new cat clinic in Cambridge

TAILS of the unexpected...

My day to day job as a vet has always been full of surprises, and as someone that enjoys variety and is easily bored, this is just as well!  The opportunity to step in and make a real difference to a cat, and their family, is never more potent than in an emergency situation, when the cat is suddenly taken ill or injured.   There doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason to the caseload we see at the clinic, but this last month, we have seen more cats than usual for emergencies or unexpected vet visits.

The cat's out of the bag!

One of the reasons we love cats is their elusive nature and independence. However, I can’t imagine a cat owner who hasn’t wondered what their cat gets up to when they aren’t around or hasn’t been curious about their whereabouts during a prolonged outside expedition! No wonder the BBC recognised that we’d be hooked by their documentary ‘the secret lives of cats’, exploring a research project undertaken in a Surrey village which tracked the movements of its cats and used ‘cat cams’ to view the world from the feline perspective.

Neutering In Good Time

It may not seem like late spring to us, but for the cats of Cambridge, kitten season is well underway.  We are very much enjoying meeting lots of new feline bundles of joy.  One of my favourite aspects of my job is watching kittens growing up and becoming happy and healthy adults in loving homes.  I am always amazed how early kittens learn how best to manipulate their humans and how easily we are trained to do as we are told!

Of course not all kittens are lucky enough to end up with the right start and there are still far too many unwanted cats and kittens that need to find the right homes.
