Customer Question

Have an older, 22 lb 'one man cat' that needs to travel and get vaccinated for that....don't want him attacking the vet, techs or airline personnel
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the cat?
Customer: he is just traveling with my 88 year old Dad over the holidays--cant be left alone with the dogs who will be dog sat--as he may attack a house sitter he doesn't know
JA: Is this new behavior?
Customer: No, has been like this all his life--a rescue cat who adores his 'dad'
JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Simon
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Simon?
Customer: He still has claws and sharp teeth--but has learned to get along with the dogs...and is 1000% more social than when my Dad adopted him
