My favourite thingsPooing on the floor, playing with dogs and clients especially children, sunbathing, playing with tails under the consult room doors, food that doesn't belong to me.
My naughtiest habitTaste testing expensive brands of foods then pooing on the floor. Short and too the point, I'm a creature of habit.
What do my clients think of me?Our clients and most of our patients adore me. I am often referred to as handsome and charismatic. A large portion of clients would take me home if given the chance. They love my tricks and find me incredibly impressive. My laid back attitude, especially around children and dogs, amazes people and many of our clients children come here especially to see me. Overall, I'm known as a SUPERSTAR- I'm kinda a big deal around here.
Other things you should know about me
Oliver (from Australind Veterinary Hospital)..... you're in my spot.
"The whole hospital was in a very lonely state,
When nearly 18 months ago a lonely kitten cried, wait!
Our hearts began to fill and the treats began to spill,
This is definietly not a drill,
He's breaking hearts (he's breaking packaging).
Staff, clients, mysteries, we're unsure about his history
And in the end we called him Sheldon, Hey! "
