This reminds me...I met with a new cat-sitting client last week. He's a big swaggering boy, very friendly and confident. Came to me straight off for petting and sniffs. A very nice boy. Many cats that I visit hide and won't come out to visit me.
The owner told me in a worried tone, that she had to warn me that he's capable of hissing and scratching. He went to the vet, and hissed and scratched and growled. So the vet told her that she needs to warn anyone that the cat comes in contact with, that he could be vicious. I said..."well, any cat can...regardess of history...and many cats are like that at the vet, but not at home." She said that the vet told her..."no, all our cat clients are wonderful when they come in here, only this cat hisses and scratches us."
I don't know what kind of vet doesn't run across nasty cats every so often...and I've never heard of a vet warning the owner like this...
That vet sounds crazy.
I can attest to having a cat who is GREAT at home, but turns into an ass hole as soon as we walk through the clinic door. I mean, literally, his head spins around and he turns evil.
But I can draw blood, trim nails, and do whatever else I need to do at home.
