Every pet deserves a loving and respectful home: please only consider acquiring a pet if you will be able to take care of its long-term needs. Also, consider choosing your animal companion from a shelter, where there are so many wonderful furry friends who need a forever home.

So, how to ensure such times pass with the minimum of distress for them, and the fewest scratches and bites for us?
In this video, veterinarian Dr. Alex Avery demonstrates how to pick up a cat the right way, for the next time you need to lift up your favourite feline.
