Foetus vs Feline- Helping you and your cat adjust to a new arrival

on October 7, 2013 - 8:41am

I can’t help noticing that recently, many of my clients are ‘glowing’ mothers-to-be.   Helping the expectant lady with her heavy cat carrier is the least I can do, but I thought that a few extra tips would be useful to those of you who are about to introduce a baby to their feline baby (ies). 

Rescue shelters are often presented with a beloved cat based on widespread myths that babies and cats don’t mix.   Hopefully this blog will help keep the whole family happy and alleviate some common concerns.

Firstly some good news!

TAILS of the unexpected...

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.
