Swimming cat from Watford enjoys water-based physiotherapy


See Watford Observer

When a Watford couple told their vet they were going to treat their cat’s broken leg with swimming lessons he “almost killed himself laughing”, however the unorthodox therapy has proved just the ticket.

Ra, an Egyptian Mau, had an accident last October and fractured his left femur. The rare breed has been attending hydrotherapy sessions at Theravet, in The Common, Chipperfield, for the last two months.
