CAT OF THE MONTH APRIL 2022

We would like to announce Tilly as our cat of the month!

Tilly is one of our golden oldies who loves to sit and watch the birds and the neighbourhood and has two very doting humans catering to her every whim.

We have grown very fond of Tilly who although can be a little nervous of strangers (especially those who smell like veterinary staff!) she has always treated us with only very casual disdain and never tells us off with the sharp bits.

Tilly recently had some digestive problems, and was a very brave girl for her  bloodwork and an abdominal ultrasound. We are happy to report she is now back to her normal self.

Our wonderful runners up are Dotty and Gamora.

Stunning Dotty has been a Vet2Cat patient for some time. Recently her owner contacted us as Dotty was not being her usual self. Upon examination it was discovered she was suffering with arthritic and abdominal pain. Dotty had also been vomiting which made her very depressed. Once the Vet2cat team got their paws on her she is now a different cat. There is a relatively new medication called Solensia which is a monoclonal antibody. It is an injection given once a month for arthritic pain. Her mom can’t believe the difference! Dotty is now running about like a kitten, pain free! Go faster medicine is the tip of the day from Dotty!

 

Last but certainly not least is the gorgeous Gamora (aka Fluffy Bum)

Gamora was adopted from a rescue centre along with her sibling, (not related but they have always been together) Harley Quinn. Adapting well to a multi cat household, she has fallen on her paws with her new hoomans. On a routine check and vaccination with Vet2Cat, Claire highlighted that Gamora had some dental disease known as resorptive lesions. This is where the tooth is destroyed which can leave a visible hole. This can be a very painful condition so the Vet2Cat team performed a dental procedure, extracting the affected teeth. Now Gamora has shiny white teeth making her a much happier cat!

CAT OF THE MONTH MARCH 2022

The Vet2Cat team had so far managed to dodge the dreaded COVID until 28th Feb, then we have sequentially taken turns to have it and be off sick, first vet Claire, then nurse Emma then nurse Ally!

We are fortunately all recovered, if still a bit drained, but it did make things tricky for the month of March, having to cancel and postpone visits. We still managed to squeeze in a fair few cats, and have selected three fabulous felines for our Cat of the Month competition; this month we have Kimon, Barney and Chewey, and the winner is …

Owie!!
Barney all recovered

WINNER- BARNEY

2-and-a-bit year old ginger & white Barney often gets overshadowed by his brother Bo who craves attention from any visitors including the Vet2Cat team! Barney is a much more reserved cat, tending to keep quiet in the hopes we might go away without noticing him. Poor Barney had a rough start in life with a bad tum for a long time, but he is now fighting fit – evident by a war wound we recently had to attend to – a bite wound on his leg – owie! He has recovered well and is back to stalking the local wildlife!

 

RUNNER-UP – KIMON

Named after a mid-5th century BC Athenian statesman and general, black & white boy Kimon is a recent addition to the Vet2Cat family. He has also been signed up to our Purrfect Health Club, and we are getting his vaccinations up to date along with regular provisions for flea and worming. Kimon has a very dignified air about him, as his namesake suggests – that is until the Pet Remedy cloth comes out and all his airs and graces disappear as he loses himself in the happy smells!

 

 

 

RUNNER-UP -CHEWEY

3-year-old ticked tabby and white Chewey was taken in from a rehoming charity 1.5 years ago but started having serious skin and behavioural issues soon after. Severe itchiness combined with odd compulsive behaviour and mood swings sometimes including aggression, made for an unhappy Chewey and very worried owner. Dermatology cases are, in vet Claire’s opinion, one of the most frustrating types of cases, for both the vet and the owner (and the patient no doubt!); the work-ups can be long-winded and expensive, and management can be difficult. There is often a lot of cross-over with behavioural problems as well, making it difficult to tease apart what is skin-related and what is behaviour-related. We now have ruled out flea allergy and food allergies, and currently Chewey is very comfortable and settled on treatment, not itchy, calm and relaxed. He even let nurse Emma pick him up for a chin scratch!

CAT OF THE MONTH FEB 2022

After a slow start to the year in January, February has had the Vet2Cat team being busy busy busy!

We have seen a wide range of patients this month – from long standing regulars, some we haven’t seen for quite a while to several newbies! Everything from spaying & chipping one of our youngest patients, Starlite, to having to let go of one of most favourite old boys – the winner of Cat of The Year 2021 our lovely Bob; gone from our sight but never from our hearts.

Out of all the furry felines of February we have narrowed it down to three contenders for Cat of the Month – Barbara, Belle and Thug.

And the winner is….

BELLE

‘Belle’ means beautiful, and she sure is! 16-and-a-half-year-old tabby & white Belle has had a bit of a year of things – she lost her most favourite feline company Sox last year and has been missing him. On top of this, some shady catty characters in the ‘hood are making it a bit scary to go outside these days, so she started using the bathmat to pee on! Some behavioural advice particularly about litter trays soon curtailed this fortunately. Belle also has hyperthyroidism which has been rather up and down for a while but hopefully is levelling out now, and she had rather bad teeth requiring a dental. Her male hooman went to the dentist on the same day, so the 2 of them recovered together in the evening – A few fillings! Pah! Belle had 13 teeth extracted! I wonder who moaned the most…?! Belle still welcomes the Vet2Cat team at the door with a chirpy meow, which we believe means ‘Come on, get the treats out!’

RUNNER UP – BARBARA

Cute 4-year-old Torbie & White Barbara is a new patient on the Vet2Cat books. She’s had quite a few hoomans in her short life already, so we are hoping she will settle in with the latest one! Having had a rather migrant lifestyle we were half expecting to find a nervous scaredy cat, but she strutted around the room with style and confidence, what a little diva! Nurse Ally even got a cuddle in!

 

RUNNER UP – THUG (real name Gavroche!)

Thug is another very confident cool cat. He practically mugs nurse Emma for treats at our visits! A lovable black & white rogue of nearly 8 years, he has been passing his health checks with flying colours, including blood pressure assessment and urine testing – fortunately he does pee in the special litter, unlike his counterpart Javi.

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…

Lulu

On the way back from her dental, vet Claire could stroke her paws!

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…

Katie

Katie has a plush cushion to ease her achey joints

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 …

Romeo

Romeo recovers from his little op with nurse Ally
Romeo likes to sit in the drying rack!

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!

Cat of the Year 2021

For December 2021 the Vet2Cat team have decided to finish the year with “Cat of the Year” instead of cat of the month.

We have so many wonderful clients that it was such a difficult decision but, Cat of the year 2021 is….

BOB

This beautiful chap of nearly 19 years young is one of the Vet2Cat team’s favourites.

Like most older puss cats, Bob has his fair share of health issues that are under management including arthritis, hypertension (high blood pressure), and hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid).

Before we knew Bob, his hooman had terrible trouble giving Bob any medications and he did not like to travel to the vets and made his feelings known!

After a few visits from the Vet2Cat team, Bob would greet us on arrival but also made sure we left!

We introduced Bob and his hooman to Easypill Putty, a mouldable palatable treat to conceal tablets. This was a game changer for them both. Bob has to have multiple medications to manage his current conditions which would never have been achievable before Easypill.

Bob also has a monthly injection called Solensia to help with his arthritic pain. It doesn’t have the same side effects as the commonly used non-steroidal treatments (please ask us for more information). It has had a huge impact on Bob’s lifestyle with his hooman reporting the shock of watching this senior citizen doing the zoomies again!

Bob has his very own personal veterinary team tending to his health needs in his own pad, and medications that help, as well as taste good.

Bob you are a legend and it is a pleasure to be your on-hand physicians!

Cat of the month November 2021

Every month we choose three cats that we feel deserve special acknowledgment. We have a winner and two runner ups.

The winner of the Vet2Cat cat of the month goes to…..

Beautiful BRUCE

Mr Fluff-ball, Bruce joined the vet2cat family recently. Like so many it was simply the trauma of being taken to the vet that prompted Bruce’s hoomans to come to us. He shares his hoomans with two other furry felines, but Bruce still rules the roost!

This gorgeous senior chap of 17 years was diagnosed with severe arthritis and high blood pressure. With careful monitoring and the most up-to-date medications, including the innovative monthly injection Solensia for arthritis, Bruce is living his life to the fullest once again!

Our first runner up this month is …

The lovely TILLY

As with many of our patients, taking Tilly to a veterinary practice was just far too stressful for both Tilly and her hoomans.

We first saw Tilly as her owner was concerned that she was limping. As it turns out, even at the age of 10 years, she was suffering from severe arthritic changes in multiple limbs, and was really struggling to get around.

This lovely laid-back lady is a pleasure to be around, living life like a kitten again with pain medications on board.

 

 

Our second runner up this month is….

The spirited BOW

It is fair to say that not all Vet2Cat patients are overwhelmed with joy to see us in their own home! Bow was no exception. Bow was not in the least but enamoured with us invading her territory, to the point she made that very clear-  our ‘Kevlar’ CatWrap blanket was always within grabbing distance!

The reason she has been chosen for this month is the outstanding progress she has made with trusting us. With worried or anxious cats this can take years of consistent training. However, with kind,gentle handling, some pharmaceutical assistance from mild pre-visit sedatives, and a lot of patience, Bow no longer gives us quite such a hard time for her check-ups!

thumbnail.jpg

Its time for our monthly appraisal of the cats we have seen, so we can pick out three special kitties. They’re not necessarily ‘favourites’, as we all know we shouldn’t have favourites, more so that they have made us smile, laugh, or sometimes even cry, with their personalities, antics and stories.

This month we have Starlite, Beau and Bruce, giving us the whole range of cat ages from kitten to super-senior.

And the winner is…

STARLITE

Well, who can resist a tiny kitten! Black, white and a tiny bit of ginger, this little bundle of fur and energy certainly keeps her hooman on her toes! She was so dinky at our first visit, and with a slightly dicky tum, we had to postpone her 1st jabs to make sure she was fit enough for it. Tummy much improved after worming and a change to good quality Royal Canin & Hills kitten foods, Starlite has now had her first vaccination, and will get a second in a few weeks. Its so lovely to watch our new little patients grow and develop and be able to guide new kitten owners about all aspects of cat ownership including nutrition and behavioural advice, not just the medical bits and bobs!

RUNNER UP – BEAU

Our next cat takes us to the ‘Mature Adult’ lifestage. At 8 years old Beau the bodacious British Shorthair has lived a blessed life in the countryside, spending most of his time out and about terrifying small things. His observant housekeeper noticed his front incisor teeth seemed to be missing and had noted weight loss. Previous visits to the vets in a carrier had been met with much wailing and gnashing of teeth – as well as panting, peeing and pooping – and probably some weeping from the housekeeper-cum-chauffeur-cum-nursemaid. Lament no longer, as Vet2Cat is here to take away all that stress! Beau ended up needing a rather extensive dental procedure due to advanced periodontitis and tooth resorption. All 4 fangs had to come out and a few others, and vet Claire had to identify and remove multiple retained roots – that’s when the crown is completely or partially missing but the roots are still present – they can cause ongoing pain or infection if not removed. Beau has recovered well and even gained weight again. Whether the local wildlife can now rest on their laurels with Beau partially de-weaponised; we shall have to wait and see.

 

 

RUNNER-UP BRUCE

At 17.5 years old Bruce falls into the ‘Super-senior’ category of cat lifestages. With the typical story of the stress of going off to the vets, it often gets to the point where us cat-owners feel its actually causing more harm than good! We’ve only just started seeing Bruce, and right from the start we could tell there were going to be multiple issues to address, and we have to tread lightly with such cases as they are often living on a bit of knife-edge, certainly until we can bring at least some of their conditions under control. Our primary concerns with Bruce were pain, and hypertension (high blood pressure) so we started our focus on those. Within days of being on a pain killer Bruce was already up to some of his old tricks. We are now waiting on some blood test results and tinkering with his BP tablet dosing. He does find even a home visiting vet’s check up rather exhausting, but at least no carrier & no car ride. We just hope we can make his twilight part of his life as comfortable as possible.

September Cat of the Month

Every month we choose 3 cats that we think have shown some incredible resilience with health issues or they are just a bit special. This month we have chosen Toby, Ralph and Buffy, and our winner is……

Buffy

Buffy is a senior lady at the age of 19! Don’t let her age fool you though, as she has the mind of a 5-year-old as the bath mat can testify to.

With being an older lady, a visit in a carrier to a veterinary practice was incredibly stressful so her human sought the services of the Vet2Cat home visiting team.

Buffy is ready for Christmas already!

With age comes the inevitable health issues and for Buffy this was in the form of hypertension (high blood pressure) and osteoarthritis. With close monitoring and medications Buffy has resorted back to feeling young and can still go in a “huff” as her human calls it.

 

 

 

 

Our first runner up for September is…

The scrumptious Toby!

Toby is a very awesome chap who is extremely polite and will tap your hand to ask for a dreamie. Recently he had to undergo dental attention which was a huge task, so much so that it had to be performed under two procedures. Being as resilient as he is, Toby will make a full recovery and will be tapping hands for dreamies in no time!

 

The second runner up for September is….

Ralph

Last but certainly not least is the rather dashing black cat Ralph. This young stunner has a lot of clever tricks up his paws, including giving high fives! The Vet2Cat team were called to assess Ralph due to him vomiting and having diarrhoea – all resolved with a few supportive treatments. Ralph also still had some of his deciduous (baby) premolar teeth. This is quite rare as cats normally lose these as they mature. Ralph’s human will be monitoring to see if they naturally fall out or if the Vet2Cat team need to give them a helping hand.

 

20201223_113448-1200x1600.jpg

Once again, May has been a busy month for Vet2Cat, with so many lovely kitties to choose from! It was a tough decision but we selected three cats which just bowled us over with their lovely characters.

Sooty loves rolling around with a Valerian sprayed cloth

Winner – Sooty

Our winner for the month of May has to be the sensational Sooty! Sooty has been a previous runner-up but his winning personality has earned him the right to be winner!

Sooty is always extremely excited to see the Vet2Cat team, especially as we always bring him his favourite toy; a cloth sprayed with valerian.

Sooty’s human servant decided that she really ought to buy him some valerian spray (aka Pet Remedy) to have at home.

Now his favourite monkey toy is sprayed regularly for hours of fun for Sooty!

 

Buffy being huffy, other times she’s fluffy!

Runner-up – Buffy

A runner up for May is the beautiful, bold Buffy. In her twilight years of 18 Buffy’s owner was convinced that the time was approaching that she would have to let Buffy go. At this point Buffy was not moving about very much and despite a good appetite she would get very constipated.  After our initial assessment it became evident that Buffy was crippled with arthritis and was also suffering from high blood pressure. After careful monitoring with her blood pressure tablets and her arthritis medication, and a gentle laxative to ease that burden, Buffy rules the roost once more! To Buffy, 18 is just a number!

 

Oooh, look at that face!

Runner up – Tilly

A truly well-deserved runner up is the timid but very affectionate Tilly! This little lady had started to limp a bit, which led her human companion to call in the Vet2Cat team to assess.

It transpired that Tilly was suffering from painful arthritis affecting all four of her limbs – not just the obviously lame one. This really surprised her owner as she, like many others, thought that this was a condition that only affected the much older cat. At only 10 years old, it is sad Tilly is so badly affected, especially as osteoarthritis is an incurable disease that progresses, the best we can do is to manage pain and make some adjustments in the environment to help them get around more easily.

After trialling some anti-inflammatory pain relief, Tilly is now doing the “zoomies” on a regular basis, with little signs of slowing down. Tilly’s owners are thrilled to see her back to her happy self again.

It seems an opportune time to bring to your attention that a brand-new medicine called SOLENSIA is now available for the treatment of arthritis in cats. This ground-breaking new product has far fewer potential adverse effects on the body, acting on pain in a completely different way to anti-inflammatories.

Cat of the month March 2021

March has been picking up and keeping us busy. As well as seeing 43 cats, many of which are new to Vet2Cat, we passed our first Veterinary Medicines Directorate inspection (phew!), the Vet2CatMobile passed its MOT (phew!), unfortunately nurse Emma’s beloved BMW got badly damaged in an accident (but no one got hurt – phew!) and we have been trialling a new ultrasound machine!

Our 3 contenders for Cat of the Month are really special cats, all for different reasons. This month we have Esme, Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond and Sooty, and the winner is…

WINNER – ESME

As well as Cat of the Month, we should also give a ‘Cat Owner of the Month’ award here!

Esme is a very pretty 2-year-old long haired tabby & white. She was taken in at the start of this year, as her previous owner did not want her anymore because she didn’t get on with the new kitten (in extremis – she tried to kill it!). She seemed to settle in quite well at her new abode, until one day when a neighbouring cat dared to sit just outside her front room window. It become apparent Esme is a very territorial cat, as she started making a lot of noise, then turned on her owner in a bout of redirected aggression. Another episodes a bit later had her poor new hooman quaking in her slippers going anywhere near her.

Esme was too scared to come out at our first visit

Cue Nurse Emma and a feline behavioural consultation! Emma spent a lot of time investigating Esme’s background and the new living situation. We went to assess her at the home, finding a very nervous, hypervigilant cat. Emma explained a lot about feline behaviour, and set the owners up with things to do, one of which was clicker training. A technique more associated with dog training, cats can also be trained – the concept is good behaviour coincides with a Click on the clicker followed immediately by a reward.  A month later we went back to vaccinate Esme and found a completely different cat AND owner. Ok, we cheated a bit by giving Esme some pre-visit mild sedation, but both of them were relaxed and happy. The clicker training had worked brilliantly, and we even used it within the consult to gain Esme’s trust. Esme is a loving cat, but just hadn’t really learned had to deal with certain situations. We are so impressed with her owner’s perseverance with the training, and not allowing a rather scary event to put her off keeping Esme. Well Done C&D, gold stars for you both.

 

Runner up – Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond

A grand title for a grand cat! 10-year-old black (with a tiny bit of white on his throat) boy Sir Sidney had been taken on by his owner from the rescue centre where she worked, selected as she wanted the ’hardest one to rehome’. A noble deed, but well worth it, as Sir Sidney flourished in his new kingdom. He is still incredibly nervous of strangers, and always suffered terribly with trips to the vets, so vet Claire popped along to assess just how difficult he might be and prescribed some of our magic pre-visit sedative. With this on board, Sir Sidney was so chilled out, it made our job not only easy but utterly enjoyable; for us, for Sir S and for his hooman courtier! Sir Sidney is a clever cat – he can walk on his 2 hind legs!

 

 

Runner up – Sooty

Slightly older black & white gentleman, Sooty is the beloved companion of a lovely senior lady. He keeps her happy and entertained with his antics. Sooty had decided about 5 years ago he preferred this lady over the hoomans he was supposed to be with, and they have been inseparable ever since, even moving into a retirement home together. Everyone at the retirement home knows Sooty, and all get concerned if he is ever ill. Vet2Cat is purrfect for Sooty and his mum, as its very tricky for her to get him to a vet practice for check-ups and treatments.

Cat of the month February 2021

February has been pretty quiet of the Vet2Cat front, what with lockdown restrictions- we have had to postpone a lot of the routine work we had lined up. Vets had to have a clinical justification to perform a face-to-face consultation, but even with this we have managed to see 19 patients at their homes.

Out of these 19 fur-babies we have selected 3 for our Cat of the Month competition. This month we have Ginger, Scarlett and Lady Muppet, and the winner is…

WINNER – Lady Muppet (pronounced ‘Moo-pay’ – as is ‘The Bou-kay Residence’ if you’re old enough to remember Keeping up Appearances!)

Lady Muppet waiting patiently for her ultrasound
Snug as a bug ready to go home

Lady Muppet is a 7-year-old pretty little tabby & white cat. She did what cats do best and hid her illness for as long as possible until she was really very unwell, and in typical cat-style showed only vague signs – went off her food and was very sleepy. On our first visit to her, we found she was severely dehydrated and had a very high temperature. After some blood and urine tests, some supportive fluid therapy and an abdominal scan we discovered the problem was an infection in her liver. We set her up with various pills and potions, and she has so far made a marvellous recovery. Your hooman now has her little diva back!

 

 

Runner up – Scarlett

Nice and toasty by the fire
1 claw nearly touching the toe bean

At the grand old age of nearly 19 years (huge apologies for adding on 2 years previously!!), Scarlett is taking her retirement lying down mostly, preferably by the fire. Like a lot of old kitties her claws have a tendency to get very long, with the risk of growing into the toe pads (or toe beans as we like to call them!). Previously renowned for her vet-harming skills, and tendency to get incredibly stressed when taken into practices, Scarlett’s hoomans were pleased to hear about our services. The first time we visited her we used some of our magic gabapentin pre-visit sedative, but this old lady is still very savvy – the second time this was attempted Scarlett totally refused to eat the laced food! Fortunately, with nurse Emma’s cat-handling skills we still managed to complete the mani-pedi with only a little grumble from Scarlett!

 

Runner up – Ginger

Belly rubs from nurse Emma

Can you guess what colour he is?!! 13-year-old long-haired ginger Ginger has lost some weight recently, and was noticeably drinking and eating more. Vet2Cat offers a cost-effective Senior Cat Screen package covering blood pressure measurement, blood testing and urine testing, to cover the most common ailments we see in this age category. Ginger needed some gabapentin to facilitate these tests as although very friendly, he had other ideas when we mentioned blood sampling! Again, in typical cat fashion, Ginger’s results are not straight-forward – so further testing is required. It is very common for older cats to have multiple conditions at the same time, which can complicate the blood picture. Fortunately, this is vet Claire’s forté, she loves unravelling the complexities of a feline medical mystery. Unfortunately for Ginger’s hoomans, this can end up costing a fair bit more money. Thank Heavens Ginger is insured!

20210111_181950.jpg

Meet Maisie our January Cat of the Month winner! Maisie was runner-up last month but we really feel she deserves to be a winner!

Maisie has been through so much in her life already. Maisie had been found dumped in a bin with her litter of kittens 3 years ago. Portsmouth Cats Lost, Found and Rehomed charity took them in until they could find them homes. They were all semi-feral and took a long time to tame. Both Maisie and her son Georgie were recently returned to Portsmouth Cats. Vet2Cat were called upon as both Georgie and Maisie are very anxious of new people and surroundings so much so that home visiting was the least stressful option.

Maisie’s very sore mouth
Say ‘Aaah!’ Much improved post-extractions.

Sadly, Maisie suffered enormously with pain in her mouth, upon examination it was discovered that she had severe gingivostomatitis. In conjunction with this they also had herpesvirus which is contagious, so they lived in a specially built cat lodge at Portsmouth cats. After a few weeks’ medical treatment for Maisie’s mouth, it was decided that the best course of action for the gingivostomatitis was to remove all her teeth as there is a 60-70% chance of a cure with this procedure. This beautiful lady coped brilliantly with the dental procedure and has improved tremendously, she has been so much happier since!

‘Penny’s Place’ at Portsmouth Cats, Lost, Found & Rehomed – cabin specially for cats waiting for new homes

There is a lovely ending to this story as both Maisie and her son Georgie have found a new forever home together!

 

 

 

 

 

Our first runner up is the simply gorgeous Tikka

Tikka is an adorable ginger baby and he is very much the centre of his human’s world. This lovely chap was lucky that his parents were already registered clients of Vet2Cat so no scary trips to the vet for him!

Vet2Cat recently  took Tikka in to perform his castration and microchipping. He was a super brave boy and his lovely personality made it such an easy task! With no stress involved!

 

The final runner up is flufftastic Akeesha!

This beauty lives with her human who idolises her which was fortunate as her keen eye noticed things were just not right with this older lady.

Vet2Cat were able to visit this nervous lady in the comfort of her own home. It was discovered that Akeesha has pancreatitis and osteoarthritis both of which can cause tremendous pain.

Akeesha endured multiple blood tests and changes to her diet to make her the happier cat that she is today, with the help of her dedicated human.
