My day-to-day task list5:00 am: Wake up, decide which toy to drown in my water bowl, then wait patiently for my staff to arrive. 8:00 am: The first of my staff arrive. I meow and swipe at all passersby to remind them how patient I am... waiting... until, finally, FREEDOM! 8:30 am: I await the arrival of the rest of my staff in eager anticipation. Sometimes I can
My favourite thingsMy mummies, greenies, toy mice, liver treats, sleeping in the in filing tray (which I have definitely not grown out of, no matter what it may look like).
My naughtiest habitStealing toy mice from the display stand in reception, despite the fact that I have plenty of my own already - oh how they tempt me! I also once tried to go on an adventure by jumping into a delivery truck, but sadly my grand travel plans were foiled by the very surprised driver. Jumping up onto the theatre table to check on patients - I thought that would be very favourable amongst my staff, but it wasn't to be. Also, I am the reason plants are no longer allowed in the office...
What do my clients think of me?They think I'm stunningly handsome of course - who wouldn't? Recently, a client who usually describes herself as "not really a cat person" was heard plotting to steal me. Proof my charms are universal.

My absolute favourite job is acting as a foster brother to any stray kittens that come into the clinic. I love to make sure that they know how to wash themselves, where to find the food and water bowls, and, most importantly of all, how to play with other cats. The only thing I don't like about this job is that the kittens can't stay and play with me forever and ever.
