Two weeks ago little Siggy came to the Cat Clinic of Lawrence because her abdomen was bloated and so heavy she could barely balance her tiny body. Siggy needed help, and fast! Our team dug in - literally. The swollen, infected uterus Dr. O'Driscoll removed during Siggy's surgery weighed almost 3 pounds! All of us fell in love with the little fighter and crossed our fingers for a smooth recovery. None of us could have hoped for a better outcome; sweet Siggy aced her follow-up visit today!

When our Client Care Representative Lyndsey heard that her kitty pal Titus wasn't eating, she told his owner he needed to come see us, and boy are we glad he did! Titus was suffering from a potentially deadly urinary blockage, and just hadn't told anyone at home about it. By the time he arrived at the Cat Clinic of Lawrence, he wasn't even lifting his head, and his heart rate was getting slower. Titus was in trouble!

Cats are masters at hiding what is really wrong with them, but they are absolutely creatures of habit. Any change in their appetite, activity level, or litterbox habits can signal that something is seriously wrong and warrants a call to your cat's veterinary office.

Thanks to Lyndsey's quick thinking, and Dr. O'Driscoll's expert care, Titus survived his brush with death to give head-butts and purrs to many more humans.

Tips for a Happy Meow-lloween 😸🎃
from National Kitten Coalition
1. Put your pets in a quiet, closed room so they can’t escape when you open the door to Trick-or Treaters.

2. Choose a costume that is comfortable and doesn't restrict your cat's movement or breathing (IF your cat enjoys dressing up for the holidays). To avoid accidents, do not leave your pets unsupervised in their costume.

3. Ensure that holiday decorations, such as string, yarn, ribbon or spiderwebs, cannot be eaten by pets or entangle them.

4. Keep lighted candles away from pets. Whiskers can get singed; a swishing tail can also get singed or knock over a candle.

5. Call your veterinarian, emergency veterinary clinic, or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at (888) 426-4435 if you suspect your pet has eaten human treats or decorations. Candy is dangerous to pets/animals.

Where in the world is Dr. O?
Things have been kind of mysterious at the Cat Clinic for the past few months as we figure out the way forward.
Here is the latest:
Dr. O is still here at 1701 Mass, and that is where the Cat Clinic will stay. We will also offer housecalls for cats that can't come to us. The building is getting a remodel, and there will be some new professional cat whisperers joining our team.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as our plan evolves!

🚨🚨 NEW #PETSITTER ALERT 🚨 🚨 Give a big #LPF welcome to our new sitter Lyana who will be helping out weekday mornings 🌄 . . Hi! My name is Lyana and I am a current #preveterinary #student at The University of Kansas studying Applied #BehavioralScience. I'm also involved in #canine behavioral research through KU and I work Cat Clinic of Lawrence! 🐱🐾I have been a life-long #animallover, as I have been surrounded by numerous big #dogs and tiny #kitties since I was a kid. I'm beyond excited to meet all of the wonderful #furryfriends here in #Lawrence! I can't wait to supply them with an abundance of #treats and #love. :) In my free time, I enjoy #reading, #watchingmovies, tending to my #plants, and hanging out with the love of my life - my #cat Bennie! . . #dogwalker #petsitting #dogsitter #dogwalking #pets #catsitter #petsitterlife #dogsitting #petcare #doglover #cats #petservices
Happy Holidays!
Phineas had a very pleasant experience today! We are both so grateful and glad to meet you all : )
I just have to say - when I told Trixie's dad that she had gained 3# in a year, he felt terrible. That day, his behaviors regarding all of the kitties' eating changed. It's only been two weeks, and my old girl has started acting like a kitten again - climbing the scratching post on the cat tree, being found on the shelves in the closet, chasing around her sisters...we didn't realize that she had been eating herself lazy. Thank you for giving my Trixie Kitten back to me!
Thanks for a great visit for Tabby today!
Yesterday was an incredibly sad day for us as we had to let go of our sweet kitty who was with us for over 20 years. We cannot thank everyone at the Cat Clinic enough for the care, compassion, and love they gave Isabel over the years and in her last days. A special thank you to Alecia and Dr. O for taking time out of their holiday with loved ones to tend to us and our loved one. They helped us give her the gift of comfort and peace and we will be forever grateful.
Hope Pokey can make you laugh today!
