Thinking of Sharing Your Home With a New Kitten?

on September 18, 2015 - 5:05pm

There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing a new kitten, but one of the most important that often gets overlooked, is how to choose the ‘right’ kitten. Although it can be difficult not to spontaneously take home the first cute kitten you meet, it is extremely important to take time and consideration, to ensure that the next 15-18 years results in a happy and enjoyable relationship between cat and owner. Kittens require good socialisation and exposure to life experiences very early on in life, between 3-9 weeks, to ensure that they turn in to well-rounded adults.

You are as important as your cat (just don’t tell them we said that!)

If I was taking my own cat, Perry, to the vets, I would expect the staff to be compassionate towards him, as I would assume that they love and respect the patients as if they were their own - but I wonder if this patience and understanding always translates to their owners?

Creating a bond between us and our clients, is just as important to us as creating a good relationship with your feline friends. You are the first step in noticing pain, diagnosing an illness, and treating or monitoring a disease.

What Veterinary Nurses can do for you and your cats

This July just passed, as well as being one of the wettest months this year and kicking off the start to the 2012 Olympics, is also National Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month!

We all know that caring hands are nursing ones, but how does this really apply to you and your feline friends at the clinic?  From persuading a poorly cat to eat, to monitoring a risky anaesthetic, the Registered Veterinary Nurse’s at the clinic carry out a huge range of nursing and medical procedures alongside your Vet’s to provide the best care for your cats.
