Cat of the month January 2022
Every month we take great pride and often a great deal of deliberation to choose one of our client’s cats for our Cat of the Month award.
For January we have selected Katie, Lulu and Romeo, and the winner is…
Despite her young looks, Lulu is 11 years old. This lovable tortoiseshell feline recently had to have a dental. Lulu is a great fan of the Vet2Cat team and didn’t hide the fact. Even though most cats are very stressed about being transported to a veterinary practice, this was not the case for Lulu! This beauty relished the attention, even though she had several teeth taken out. There was purring from collection, during the induction of anaesthetic and on recovery! The most well-behaved lady and travel companion to date!
Our January 2022 runner up is…
With years comes wisdom and Katie is certainly no fool. Not a huge fan of the Vet2Cat team at the start, Katie is now far more relaxed after regular visits and gentle handling. Pushing her way through to be over 18 years old and still opinionated! This loveable senior was diagnosed with high blood pressure and severe arthritic pain. Both conditions are manageable and are very common within the senior feline community. We love Katie even if it’s not entirely reciprocated!
The second January 2022 runner up is …
Maine Coon stunner Romeo is one of our largest cat patients! Being a Maine Coon, he is considered quite senior at the age of just over 12 years. With age comes the inevitable health concerns. Romeo has quite severe arthritic changes which made life very uncomfortable. With the most current pain medications, Romeo is feeling so much more himself. In addition to his medications, Romeo also has regular acupuncture carried out by Susan Andresier owner of https://acupaws.co.uk/
Recently, his hoomans found a funny looking lump on his inner thigh. Initial tests indicated it might be a nasty type of skin cancer, so an operation was planned. Fortunately, thorough analysis of the removed lump showed it was a more benign type of lump! What a relief!
