Your Best Friend's Best Friend

Job title


My day-to-day task list

Eating, playing, sleeping in the sun, saying hello to patients and monitoring, nursing and/or annoying all animals in hospital, stealing everyone else's food, including the shelf products.

My favourite things

Playing! Getting snuggles when I would like them and sleeping in the sunbeams upstairs in the Cattery.

My naughtiest habit

Stealing any food I can get my paws on... and I also like tipping the bins over, just to check for potential toys and make sure the nurses have plenty of work to do.

What do my clients think of me?

They think I am awesome and they always come up and say hello to me first - or wonder where I am if I'm not close by! My full story is on our website.

Other things you should know about me

I love joining in on our client consults... a highlight was the time I let myself out of my cage and decided to introduce myself to the consult while a vet and nurse were taking a blood sample from a canine.
I'm sure the patient loved it!
I've also been known to not only steal canine and feline food, but also grass, fresh veggies and hay from any rabbit patients or boarders. I'm also certain that they love having me come and say hello.
Essentially, I am perfection - as long as we don't talk about that slight pot belly. I swear that has nothing to do with food theft and everything to do with being loved by all and overfed. Really!
