Job titleBusiness Manager, Head Nurse, Model, Queen B
My day-to-day task listFirst thing in the morning I like to do the rounds and check on all of our in-house patients. This usually entails a long loud meow to make sure everybody is aware of my presence. After my morning nursing duties are complete I like to enjoy a hearty breakfast of Renal biscuits followed by a very large drink of water (as you may have guessed, I unfortunately have some kidney issues). Next I need to get myself looking good for the day ahead; after all, I am the face of the clinic. I get my fellow nurses to brush me daily and once a week I am treated to an Aloveen Oatmeal leave in conditioner. This works wonders on my coat and keeps me looking young and hip. The rest of the day is spent greeting our lovely clients, sitting on laps the second anyone sits down and of course getting more beauty sleep.
My favourite thingsMy Aloveen Oatmeal Conditioner, sitting on laps, greeting clients, eating a sachet of Tuna flavoured Renal food, wearing my crown sitting on my special cushion
My naughtiest habitEating unattended lunches, jumping on laps for snuggles at inconvenient times (some people would probably classify me a stage 5 clinger, but I just think I have a lot of love to give), meowing very loudly (I also think I may have some hearing loss).
What do my clients think of me?My clients think i'm wonderful! I get lots of compliments on my loving nature when i'm busy taking care of nursing duties out the back I often hear Clients asking about where I am.
Other things you should know about me
I came to the clinic 6 months ago as a stray with a bad paw infection, a sore eye and a cyst on my tummy with my coat in a terrible condition! After some serious TLC I am now looking the best I have in years. I am extremely blessed to have been dropped into Taringa Vet Surgery who very kindly gave me the job of Clinic Cat.
