At home we grew up with both cats and dogs. My siblings were crazy about the cats and I preferred the dogs. When I came to Oman and started working at Al Qurum Veterinary Clinic, there were cats everywhere. Throughout the years I have learned so much about the body language of cats that I now feel much more confident around them. My ultimate cat friend was Popeye; a stray who obviously needed medical attention, but didn’t trust people enough to get close to him. I spent a lot of time winning his trust and in the end I could bring him in to the clinic for IV treatment of his kidney problems. When it was his time to go, I cried for days. He knew it was his time to go and when I was crying about it, he licked the tears of my cheeks. He was the best friend ever.
