Cat of the Month – November 2019

At the end of every month the Vet2Cat team picks out 3 nominations to be our prestigious Cat of the Month winner! Cats which have struck us as being particularly cute, cheeky and full of character.

This month we have selected Buck, Georgia and Squee – and the winner is…BUCK!

WINNER – BUCK

Buck was a runner-up for this award back in September, so I think his staff will be proud he’s our winner this month! Buck is such a dude, he loves our Pet Remedy Valerian spray we use at visits and starts rolling around in it! He is a whole chunk of love, a solid handsome white and tabby, and loves to patrol his territory. At home however he’s a bit of a lazy boy, I think his motto would be “Why stand when you can sit, why sit when you can lie down”! He’s become a bit arthritic in his senior years, we’re hoping some pain relief might get him moving a bit more!

Buck’s markings make him look a bit frowny, but he’s a lovely fella!

Runner Up – Georgia

Gorgeous ginger Georgia has had a tough life but still remains super friendly and chirpy. Georgia’s devoted mum took her on from a rescue organisation 6 years ago knowing she had issues. She had been hit by a car resulting in nerve damage to the bladder and the need to amputate her tail. As time has gone by, the bowel function has also become affected. She is on a concoction of medicines to try to keep the number ones and number twos flowing, and her mum has to be very vigilant. We had to help relieve a build up by performing an enema under sedation. Despite all this, she is a loving, adorable companion.

 She’s gorgeous and she knows it! Nurse Emma looks after Georgia as she recovers from her sedation.

Runner Up – Squee

Squee is just a gorgeous bundle of black and white fluff! She’s a chatty cat, always having conversations with the help. We did cheat a little for our first visit as we felt she was a teensy bit anxious, so she had a dose of gabapentin before our main visit. This is a useful ‘anxiolytic’ (meaning ‘breaks down anxiety’) for cats about to experience stressful experiences (vets, car journeys, moving house etc). With that on board, she was super chilled throughout her examination, she just fell asleep on nurse Emma’s lap!

Beautiful Squee just chillin’ on the scales!
