A poor shot a better story

An unexpected relative 2


I was called out to a patient I had not seen before -- when I walked in I noticed a little old cat.

me: oh you have a cat?

Patient -I have three

me- oh so do I

patient -I have a maine coon

me - oh so do i

patient --My son breeds them he was the first kitten

me (penny dropping)--Does he live local?

patient - yes

Me - Cobweb my cat belonged to them she was their first cat, then she was retired to a nice home !!! thats me

Patient - cobweb was the name of his mother and look there is a picture of cobweb on my fridge !!!


She could not wait to get on the phone to her son and daughter in law !! he is a beautiful cat -- very big -- and so shy. This is why this is such a bad pic I was scrabbling around on the floor pointing the camera in cupboards etc trying to make nice welcoming cat noises!! but my charms failed me and this is as good as it gets. Will go back again and maybe show her some pics of cobweb now --- needless to say there was lots of cat talk

this has happened to me before here is a link to the last time it happened
