Favorite Part of My Job: Playing with kittens

About me: I am an orange and white Domestic Shorthair. I like to lounge on the front counters at the clinic and in my squishy bed in the back. I hate it when our clients are crying, so I sit with them during the hard times to make things a little easier. I love to meet new kittens and watching squirrels and lizards play in the parking lot. I have also mastered tricks like sit, fist bump, sit up and many more!

About me: I am a very old Domestic Medium Hair. I spend most of my time sleeping up front. I was left in a cardboard box on the front porch at the clinic one morning in the spring.
