MEET OUR CLINIC CATS
Sam came to us originally as an adoption cat in 2011. We fell in love with his personality and decided to keep him as a clinic ambassador. What Sam may lack in affection, he makes up for in attitude. When he’s not supervising the clinic, he can be found sleeping or looking for a dripping faucet to play with. Looks can be deceiving; although they could be twins, he and Sara are not related.
Marley was adopted from an animal shelter one day before she was scheduled to be euthanized. Marley’s passions are eating, sleeping, and playing with straws. Marley has slowly begun to replicate Sara’s famous hugs… lucky for us, she doesn’t drool while hugging. This is a new and infrequent behavior for Marley, you are lucky if she chooses you to practice on.
Sara was found during the summer of 2010 with her brother behind a fence at a neighbor’s house. The temperature that day was a scorching 104 degrees and their mother had not been seen all day. Dr. Shipman took the kittens in and bottle fed them until they were old enough to be weaned. Sara loves to give hugs and nuzzle your neck. Be forewarned, she may drool a little! Clients love taking selfies while Sara hugs them, we would love to see your Sara-selfie on our Facebook page.
