The cat in the photograph with me as a young by had a strong influence on my decision to become a vet. His name was Binky, and he was my first pet along with my rabbits at the time. He became very ill with enteritis, and my mum and I visited the vet with some fear about what would happen to him. The vet told us 'he might die, but with this medicine that I need you to give him every day, he might survive'. I made sure Binky got that medicine, and to my absolute joy and delight he got better. The emotion I felt was so strong that I felt that there was nothing I would rather do than become a vet and develop the skills I needed to help animals like Binky.
There is a very special relationship between cats and their owners. Whilst all species of animal have something special, the rapport, love, fascination and fun that can come from individual cats who all have their own unique personalities is highly appealing to us fellow cat lovers. You see, I am totally hooked on cats. As the saying goes, dogs have owners, but cats have staff!
I would like your views on what you would like to see and read about in this special section of my website on your special friends who come in many different colours, types, but all miaow and purr.

Topics I intend to cover so far include : nutrition, parasites, nasty infectious diseases, that stubbornly difficult gingivitis problem that affects quite a lot of cats and is extremely difficult to treat. I look forward to hearing from you.
