I’ve always known I wanted to work with animals, and while ‘Professional Kitten Snuggler’ may not be a real job, this is pretty close. My favourite part of the job is the constant abundance of adorable feline friends, and keeping Instagram updated with a little bit of the adorableness we get to see every day.
I remember asking Santa in kindergarten for sparkly jelly sandals, the new Polly Pocket, and a kitten. And while my sister got a kitten the following year, I still continued to beg for one of my own. So it should come as no surprise that the moment I moved out on my own I got my, now 10-year-old cat, Molly.
My first pet was a little hamster named Chip, who survived a house fire and went on to live another year after! The Hamster was followed by doves, cats, and one dog! And now I have 2 cats and a Children’s Python, as well as the constant urge to get more and more animals.
All cats, but indoor cats especially, need enrichment and mental stimulation. Enrichment can increase activity (which can help with weight control) and prevent many behavioural issues related to low mental stimulation (things like inappropriate litter box usage, anxiety, aggression and attention-seeking).
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Monday to Friday: 8:30 am - 5:30 pm Saturday: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Sunday: CLOSED
