Successful Information night

Tuesday, November 01, 2016

 Over 150 people crowded in to hear our vets talk about the normal - and sometimes irritating -  behaviour of our beloved feline friends last Thursday night. While we ate a sumptuous supper we discussed the issues we have fitting a solitary, independent animal into our lives.

Much of the information from the night will appear on this blog over the next few weeks.


Several people went home with lucky door prizes for their lucky cats.

Our speakers were (L-R) Kate Arnott from Hill's, Dr Helen Purdam and Dr Georgia Knudsen
