In my indoor cat's 10+ year life so far, she has only been sick twice. Yesterday was the second time, when she stopped eating for an entire day and wouldn't move from one spot all day. Her usual vet, Dr. Lafer, was out of town, but she still took the time to chat with me about the issue and advise me to bring her in for an exam.
I was able to get an appointment just an hour and a half after my call that morning, for which I am immeasurably grateful. Dr. McClaine took over my cat's care for Dr. Lafer that day, and she was fantastic--very thorough, courteous, friendly, gentle, and attentive to all my questions (just as Dr. Lafer always is).
The next day, my cat was back to being her normal self. Thanks so much!
