Aaliyah

That’s the line my husband used when I suddenly realised how fat my cat Aaliyah had actually got. It’s easy not to see the weight piling on when you see your pet every day, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

15 Seconds of Fame

What would you do for your 15 seconds of fame? A few weeks ago we made a short video about our business and entered it into a competition run by iZettle, who make our credit card reader. It was surprisingly difficult to show the world what makes us special in just 15 seconds but on…

Cat scratching

“That can’t possibly be flea dirt” I thought to myself as I walked past my cat Molly’s bed, “I’m the vet, my cat can’t have fleas!” A wave of embarrassment washed over me as I realised that yes, my own cat had fleas. I had forgotten to apply her monthly flea preventative for the past…
