About Muna - Veterinary Surgeon and Cat Behaviourist
Ever since I was young, I have been passionate about all animals, even though I was only allowed hamsters as a child! Even so, I decided I wanted to be a veterinary surgeon from a very young age, and qualified as a vet from the Royal Veterinary College in 1991.
Having spent my first 5 years in mixed practice, I made the move to small animal practice for the next 20 years, before finally focusing solely on cats (the superior species, IMHO!) since 2018. I have also had an interest in animal behaviour since qualifying as a vet, as I have seen first-hand the interplay between physical health and behavioural health, and sadly, how behavioural issues in pets may result in rehoming or even euthanasia.
I obtained my Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling (PGDipCABC) in 2005 from Southampton University. Since this time, I have offered behaviour advice and behaviour consultations both independently and in various practices that I have worked for over the years. I am currently a candidate member with the Fellowship of Animal Behaviour Clinicians, hoping to gain my full accreditation as a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB). Whilst I still work part-time as a cat-only veterinary surgeon, I am also continuing to build my feline behaviour practice, accepting referrals from veterinary surgeons around the Oxfordshire area and beyond.
I live in West Oxfordshire with my two feline family members, Georgie and Winnie, who continue to teach me every day about all things cat! I look forward to meeting you and your fabulous furry feline family members soon.
I aim to respond to all enquiries within 48 hours.
