We are very proud of our beautiful fur baby 💕

Electra is going to be Miss August 2018 in our wonderful Vets’ charity calendar and last week we were invited to a presentation where we met the other winners and their human mums and dads, and were given our calendar and a lovely gift basket to say ‘well done’!

We’ll be buying a few calendars to give to others as well because they’re on sale for Marie Curie Cancer Care 👍

November 7th 1867: Marie Curie born

On this day in 1867, the famous Polish physicist and chemist Marie Curie was born in Warsaw. She was born Maria Salomea Skłodowska and became Marie Curie after her marriage to fellow scientist Pierre Curie. She is best known for her work on radioactivity and her discovery of the elements polonium and radium. Marie Curie is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most-accomplished scientists of all time, becoming the first female recipient of a Nobel Prize and the first female professor at the University of Paris. She died in 1934 aged 66 but her legacy continues today, especially through the British organisation Marie Curie Cancer Care which looks after cancer patients.
