Being a clinic kitty is hard work! It certainly is not for just any cat.  As such, our clinic cats tend to rotate through before finding a forever home (usually at the Hudson residence) 

Our current clinic kitties are Grace, or Bobble (white and gray) as we call her, has high brain syndrome, which makes her "bobble" around.  She is deaf and doesn't see well.  But she manages to be happy and playful! 
We also have Wobble. She is a brown tabby that Dr. Denton brought us from the Camden Shelter. We believe she has cerebellar Hypoplasia, which makes her "wobbly".  She spends most of her time in the back, asleep in one of the doctor's chairs.
