For Christmas Metro Cat Clinic will be open Saturday, December 24, from 8:00 to noon but will be closed Monday, December 26.  For New Years we will be closed Saturday, December 31 but open on Monday, January 2.

You may now fill out our new client form online!!  Same info as is on the printed form but it's submitted to the clinic electronically, so we can have your record set up before  you arrive.   Be sure to bring a copy of the new client coupon with you if your kitty is new to the clinic.M

Metro Cat Clinic is now participating in the free first kitten exam program for cats adopted from Shelby Humane Shelter.   Just bring your adoption documents with you for your appointment.  Only the exam is at no charge; any other services or products will be at regular prices.

We now have Metro Cat Clinic apparel for sale.  Both the t-shirts and the baseball caps are available for $20 each.  All proceeds go to the Hopsing Fund, which pays for treatment for feral kitties.  We have caps in both tan and black, and the t-shirts come in a variety of both women's and men sizes.  

You can read more about the Hopsing Fund under the 'For Our Clients' tab at the top of each page.

Calm visits to the vet start at home:  get the carrier out a couple days before the appointment, so your cat doesn't automatically connect the carrier to a trip to the vet; make sure the carrier is level in your car, and cover it with a towel so the cat won't be bombarded with stimuli; wipe the carrier down with Feliway.  Contact us prior to your visit for more ideas to make the trip less scary for your cat.
