Welcome to Cambridge Cat Clinic. We are Cambridgeshire's first feline only veterinary clinic, located in Fulbourn, only 15 minutes from Cambridge city centre. We look forward to welcoming you and your cat at the clinic. Please get in touch for more information about the clinic, opening hours or to register your cat and book an appointment. We have recently achieved all the Cat Friendly Clinic standards at Gold level (Advanced) a scheme run by the ISFM.
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.
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.
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.
