As a Feline Veterinary Practice we feel it is very important that cat owners always get the best advice . We ourselves feel competent to give all basic advice re behavioural issues but we often find that the problems can be complex and that for best help should be referred to Kim Houston at CAT-astrophes. She is very competent and caring and we would not consider referring our patients to any consultant other than Kim.
