'Can do', for Nundo

Please welcome Nundu; the magical black beast from the Southern Highlands’ own wizarding world and your Tuesday featured-feline at Mittagong Vet!

Nundu’s are described by author J.K. Rowling in her 2001 book ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ as a mythical, mysterious beast, resembling a giant lion or leopard. They’re carnivorous, perilous, move silently, and their breath is instantly lethal, should you be so unlucky as to breath it. Well, our visiting Nundu today wasn’t at all perilous (in fact, he was quite affectionate and adorable). Just like the famed Magizoologist Newt Scamander (the protagonist of Fantastic Beasts’) it only took one Dr Keith to subdue this mystical Nundu, as opposed to at least 100 wizards working in tandem! 

And my goodness, Nundu’s breath certainly summoned great courage and veterinary-wizard-skills. He was treated for a super-sore tooth abscess. After surgery and lots of nurse cuddles, Nundu the magical black-cat of the district returned home to his adoring human, with his Magic-Mojo back on track. He’s one lucky black cat!
