So what does a self respecting cat do? He or she finds a place to hide, to protect himself. The clinic's sink is far from ideal as there is no top on it but at least the sides and bottom are protected. Cats do like protection from above though. This is probably because a lot of the danger comes from above (think human, the giants in the cat world).

What could a vet do to improve, from the cat's standpoint, the consultation room? Put a little hiding place in the room...lol. I am not sure though when a cat has time to go and hide.
