Bear came to us after his elderly owner could no longer care for him.  He is a friendly, social cat who loves to greet our clients on the front counter.

He has learned that Piper is the queen of the practice. His favorite past times included chasing hair ties down the hall (with close supervision to make sure he does not ear them), trying to push our receptionists off of their chairs, and curling up in one of the many cat boxes in the clinic.



Piper is an 16 year old Scottish Fold Shorthair. Her folded ears are characteristic for this breed. She came to live with us in 2011. She unfortunately preferred urinating on carpet and her previous owners tried everything to get her to use her litter box. She lived with other cats she did not get along with and the stress made her urinate out of her litter box. We offered her a new home and she and Bear get along very well. She uses her litter box all the time now. Although she has a grumpy look on her face all the time, she is actually a very gentle easy going cat.
