From the end of next week you will see 3 NEW faces in the practice. Some of you will have already met our NEW nursing team, as they have been covering the odd shift, as part of slow transition. We are excited to introduce to the SimplyCats Team Penny, Sadie and Tanya. They will be supporting Sarah and Lucie and covering Kelly our nurse's maternity leave until May next year.
Can we ask that you give the girls a nice warm welcome to the practice. Thank you so much

This week we going to look at “acceptable touching and stroking in your cat’s eyes”. Before I hand you over to Sara Ellis at ISFM, there are some common ground rules you need to consider when interacting with your own cat.
1. Always greet your cat in the appropriate manner, like we learnt last week using an outstretched finger, hand or gently clasped fist. This will inform your cat you intend to elicit an interaction.
2. Keep all stroking, touching and scratching around the head, cheeks, ears and chin. Stroking these areas replicate the same secretion of chemical pheromone deposits with cat-cat allo-rubbing. This can help the cat feel calm.
3. It’s is crucial to STOP stroking once you have stroked a cat. This allows you opportunity to observe your cat’s response to the interaction. If your cat wishes for more attention, he/she will move closer towards you and engage with the stroke more. However, if the cat removes itself from the situation, respect the fact the cat has had enough.
4. Slow rhythmic purring, gently closing of the eyes and pushing his/her weight into the hand stroking - are all positive signs that the cat is enjoying the experience.
I will now hand you over to Sara Ellis at the ISFM, she will explain points I have covered in this weeks segment, and also indicate negative signs that your cat isn’t enjoying an experience.Part of the International Cat Care and Ceva cat handling video series (owner) ... See MoreSee Less
