Today, I want you to meet my cat – Sully Wally. He got upgraded to Uncle Wally after my sister gave birth to a baby girl last October 2013. Hehehe.
So some background… Wally have been with us since year 2000. Prior to that, he was living with my aunt. But since my aunt knows that we love cats, she decided to give Wally to us. So Wally and I took a flight from Alor Setar, Kedah to KL on Christmas day 2000. What’s funny was that – because we took the flight, Wally was placed in a special compartment meant for pets. Maybe they have this oxygen box thinge for him to chill on the flight. How we reunite back after we landed was that his carrier was placed on the conveyor belt together with all the other baggage. People won’t realized that there’s a cat on it but because he meows to all the people that he sees, people then finally realized that he was there.
I’ve been wanting to write about Wally’s vet and I got the permission from the doctor, Dr. Clement to write about his clinic. Wehoo! So here goes!
Wally was due to get his annual vaccine done. I usually go to Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI) Veterinary Clinic. Wally have been to this clinic since 2001! We chose TTDI because initially we were staying at Damansara area, about 10 minutes drive to TTDI. Then we moved to Ampang 4 years ago, and I have tried the vets here in Ampang but nothing beats Dr. Clement in TTDI. I don’t mind driving although now the journey will take 30 minutes to reach TTDI – so long as I know my cats are in good hands. We reached at 1pm but I was informed that Dr. Clement is currently performing a surgery and will take about 1 hour. I decided to wait and let Wally roam around the clinic.
We were called in to the consultation room after the doctor was done with his earlier operation. Anne – the Vet Nurse recognizes Wally and even calls his name, Sully (that’s what they call him – well Sully or Wally, both still his name =) ) without looking at Wally’s information on the computer. Hehehe.. The doctor examined Sully Wally, cleaned his dirty ears, recorded his weight and gave him the vaccination. Wally even got his ID chip in him and now he owns a passport! =)
I really like the way Dr. Clement and Anne handles Wally – gentle with loving care. You can tell that they really love animals and will do anything to help these animals a chance to live.
Take Wally for instance, he had numerous visits to Dr. Clement in the past because he was caught fighting with other cats. Wally thinks he’s macho enough to beat these cats but No! He ended up defeated in the fight and would come home with puncture marks on his ears, shoulders, etc. Once his ears got ripped and poor Dr. Clement had to stitch back to his original state.
When it was time to say goodbye and as usual, Anne would normally carry Wally and gives him hugs and kisses before passing him back to me.
To Dr. Clement and Anne, Thank you for treating Wally! You guys are the best!
This is a photo of Wally on his way home after visiting the vet. I think he was relieved that the checkup went well!
