A student vet has won a national award her work on rehoming cats.
Cats Protection praised 23-year-old Molly George for her ‘impressive’ standards.
Molly is in her final year at the University of Bristol studying feline medicine and entered the charity’s student awards (EMS). Entrants carry out a placement at one of Cats Protection’s centres and must submit a report afterwards.
Molly, who lives in Yatton, said: “Being a final year vet student with an interest in feline medicine, I wanted to experience more shelter medicine and the National Cat Centre in Sussex was a great and fulfilling placement.”
Dr Vanessa Howie, the charity’s head of clinical services, said: “Molly offered some exceptional insights into feline medicine, recognising what can be learnt from shelter medicine to benefit cats in general practice.
“She has a great understanding of feline medicine and we wish her all the best in her future career as a veterinary professional.”
