Thanks for the link demac; caught some of it last night and yes, it certainly shows us just how busy they are and the distances they have to drive to some of the farms. Loved seeing the way the vet lifted the cat by the scruff of the neck. That's how, as children, we were taught to do it as it emulates the way the mother cat lifts her kittens!

I watched a bit of Episode 2 last night and found it really interesting. I missed the first episode so will catch up with it on BBC iplayer.

Iain is a great vet and a really nice person. When Benjy fractured his leg he very kindly took him down to the orthopaedic surgeon in Perth for us,when he was travelling South, whilst we cared for his dog.
I'll never forget his kindness during that worrying time.

Really looking forward to the rest of the series. :)
