Johnson and Scott Vets, which has a surgery based in Witchford is now running new ‘calm cats clinics’ at, during which there will be no other types of animal booked in for appointments.

The clinics will also have subdued lighting in the waiting room in a bid to keep kitties calm.

Jacquie Green, animal nursing assistant, said: “Cats can experience high levels of stress when they have to go to the vets for routine treatments such as vaccinations or flea and worm treatments.

“They end up sharing waiting room space with other animal types that they are naturally scared of, and veterinary practices can be noisy, brightly lit places - all things a cat would normally try to avoid.”

The calm cats clinics will be held every Monday from 2-3pm.

Jacquie said: “During the clinics there will be no other animal types booked in for routine appointments, the lighting in the waiting room will be subdued and every care will be taken to ensure a pleasant experience for feline shrinking violets. “We are also lucky to have a completely self-contained cat ward within the surgeries where cats can rest in peace and quiet, away from other, more noisy patients.”

Call the practice on (01353) 634123 for more information.
