    Genaraly I pick my cat up carefully, under the front legs first then take her weight on back end second. She may cuddle like a baby, but pick up for vets definitely involves a firm, gentle “sit” position hold. Only a cat knows the right way to be held – my experience – never the right way, they make the rules!
