World Vet Day and Superpowers Caturday

UPDATE: Last night we updated to the new 4.2 version of WordPress which caused our major technical issues including comments not showing up. After spending much of the day with tech support, most of the issues were resolved but we’ll be taking a break until Monday. It’s times like these when I wish I could trade places with a happily napping cat! Thanks so much and hopefully all comments will show up soon.


The last Saturday in April is World Vet Day, the day when the life-saving contribution to animals and their community by veterinarian are honored. We’re hugely grateful for our vets. Thank-you Rich Goldstein, Stacey Joy Hershman and Letrisa Miller.

One vet in the news has the veterinary profession up in arms. Veterinarian Kristin Lindsey, accused of killing a cat with a cross box last week It might be time her for to re-visit the oath she took when she became a vet.

  1. Good luck with getting everything working properly. And though Nellie HATES the vet (with her, hate is not a strong enough term) the other cats and dog love the vet. We have been lucky to have had great ones.

  2. We give thanks for all of those that help, that heal ,that care no matter how small or insignificant they think the contribution may be or how great and encompassing it may be. Love,gentleness,compassion,kindness,caring open hearts and minds. Thank you to all. We celebrate and thank our Vets for having all of those things and more.

  3. We are lucky to have very caring vets were we go. I do miss the one we had for 12 years that moved away though. Have a great Caturday.

  4. My cats have far too many superpowers to list, but I am reminded of my beloved Jazz who would come and visit me on occasion in the afterlife. Blessings to all the veterinarians that stay true to their oath – it is not an easy job – so much hardship to see, but thankfully they also do so much for making the lives of our pets better.

  5. I say thank you to all vets who are there to protect us and to help us even on weekend or at night… and I hope K. Lindsey bows her head with shame today and maybe she remembers what it really means to be a vet…
