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 cats are Otto (tuxedo) and Grace/Bobble (white and gray)
Otto was hit by a car as a wee baby and had 2 broken legs. He has limited use of one of his front legs, but does just fine.
Grace, or Bobble 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!
