The cat has nine lives. But do not ever take this much life for granted. Just remember that while the small cat does indeed have its own nine lives on which to survive, it will still be living through a lot less years than the average human being. Also, because the creatures are so small, they are so much more vulnerable than we are, stuck within urban environments as they are today. When it comes down to medical care, these creatures need extra special care.
Fortunately, they are getting it. All nine lives, for however long the cat is destined to live, can be well cared for by a specialist state of the art cat surgery today. It is light years ahead of your average downtown or run of the mill veterinary clinic. The usual vet tends to cater for all sorts, from budgies and hamsters to the cats and their dogs, and even exotic pets like snakes from time to time. In point of fact while this good doctor can try his best for all sorts, his work can be become a case of trying to do too much for so many but ending up doing so very little.
The good Doctor Doolittle should, however, be immensely impressed and proud of this cat surgery. He does not need to sigh because he is relieved. He is relieved to know that here is a team of vets and able assistants who really know what they are doing. They can handle every aspect of the cat’s anatomy, psychology and achieve overall wellbeing for the animal. Those nine lives can be stretched a little bit longer.
And the longer years can also become qualitatively healthier and better for the cats.
