A Day In The Life Of A Veterinarian: Cats Edition

Ever wondered what a day in the life of a veterinarian would look like? Well, wonder no more! One Imgur user that goes by grabboid10 has given us a glimpse into her world and it's filled with cats! 

Being a vet is probably every young animal lover's dream. We know it was ours when we were younglings. The only thing that stops a lot of us from moving forward with this dream is the realization that you'd be seeing a lot of sick animals. And sometimes, animals so sick there's really not much you can do. It's a heartbreaking thought but the animal-lovers that do follow this road are strong, and they are so brave. Thank you to all the vets out there who dedicate their lives to helping animals. Seriously, thank you. 

Recently, there was an AskReddit thread asking the vets of Reddit to share what they wish their clients knew, and it's very informative.

Today we're going on a tour into the day in the life of one veterinarian, cats edition. The following commentary is provided by Imgur user grabboid10:

    "I heard you guys like cats so I wanted to give you all cats! This is a stray we found outside our clinic and we named her Momma Cat because she was pregnant. She was the sweetest lady and would snuggle with me. --

    We were able to get her to a rescue and she's living her best life now."

    "This is actually my cat, Tiger. She passed away in 2012 but she’s the reason I wanted to become a vet. I carry her tag with me on my stethoscope so she’s never far from my thoughts. Greatest cat that ever lived!"

    "I LOVE sphynx cats, they’re so cool! This is Ripley, she belonged to one of my techs. She unfortunately was an older lady when I met her so I only got to be her vet for about a year, but she was awesome. --

    She screeched like a dragon and loved to hide in warm places like your lap (covered in blankets). I bought her that super cute star sweater because she was definitely the star of the show."

    "This is Ripley’s housemate, Drago. He makes some really intense muffins, as can be seen by him gripping my shoulder. He’ll make muffins for days if you let him!"

    "This crazy creature was known as Fury, but we often called him Schitten (because he was a very naughty kitten aka shit head). I’ll probably make a separate post about him in the future as he was signed over to us for urinary blockage --

    (owners wanted to euthanize him) at 8 weeks old."

    "Guys, meet Layla Consuela Banana Hammock WeebleWobble. She has neurological issues that her previous owner could not afford to manage so one of my technicians adopted her (same one who saved Ghost). --

    "This is Kami and she LOVES to be carried around and ride over a shoulder. When she comes in for appointments we frequently carry her around for a tour of the clinic and she’ll just perch on your shoulder purring the whole time."

    "Sorry for the selfie but I love my one tech’s cats so much that whenever she brings them in I try to take pictures with all of them together. This is the best one I’ve gotten so far as usually they don’t sit still long enough to get a shot."

    "My favorite cat patient, Coco! She used to be all black but as she’s aged she started to develop white spots in her fur. I think it makes her look very distinguished!"
