© 2011 by The York Daily Record/Sunday News. Patches, a 5-year-old cat belonging to Carol Bishop and her mother Mary of East Manchester Township, hisses at veterinarian Lisa Wade just as Wade asked her to open her mouth during a routine check-up on Friday, Oct. 28, 2011, at Shiloh Veterinary Hospital East. Carol Bishop said Patches wasn't very happy about going to the vet, and an assistant had to throw a towel over Patches' head and hold the cat in place while wearing welder's gloves as Wade gave Patches a rabies shot in the rump. Capital BlueCross is now offering insurance for pets through a partnership with pet insurer Petplan.
