The Clinic Cats:

Archer came to us as a confused little kitten who thought a dog was his mother.  Abandoned as a newborn, Archer was bottle-raised by our technician, Stephanie.  He is now a healthy, trouble-making resident of the clinic.




Ruby came to us several years ago when her owners could no longer keep her.  We are not sure what initially injured Ruby’s eye, but when it did not heal, we removed it and she is now the resident one-eyed cat.
