We Had Dogs At The Cat Clinic Tonight!|

I work in a vet!
Some questions about related careers:
Have you ever had to go fishing in the trash for lost limbs before? I have a dog's leg to answer that.
Working primarily with cats is a nasty business to ask for, I prefer canines 8 out of 10, but I'm curious to know what methods you use for restraining your felines? ie, neck scruffing, towel wraps, pinning down by the legs, net trap?
What are some of the most interesting (or idiotic/crazy) phone calls your clinic has had?
Example 1: We were once called because a guy had a squirrel on top of his home, and wanted us to get it down. There was a tree with a branch resting on his roof, so he says, so we told him not to worry, the squirrel would make it on its own.
Example 2, a favorite: A woman called in and asked it we could clone her dog. Yup. Small town vet clinic with cloning technology. Naturally, we had to ask why, and were not disappointed. According to the owner, with absolute fervor and sincerity, the dog could mysteriously heal people of their illnesses. Now, I admit there are things out there that happen beyond our explaining, but at that moment in time, I could not explain keeping a straight face. :D
