Mouse our clinic cat, was a rescue along with her mother and 2 other siblings. It was a rainy day in October when a Purolator driver found a box on its side in a parking lot, inside was a mom and 3 kittens. The team went to the location described by the driver and was able to catch all 4 cats. They were skinny, flea infested, covered in diarrhea and soaking wet. They were immediately bathed, warmed up and then given flea prevention, dewormer and a good meal. Mouse's littermates both went to the same wonderful home where they are thriving and spoiled! Mouse's mother went to Ottawa to live with Dr. Esther's parents, leaving just Mouse.
Mouse has been groomed from about 8 weeks of age to become a clinic cat. She has many jobs to perform including; official greeter, night security guard, supervisor of care and professional lap warmer.
When you come in to the clinic, you are sure to be greeted by Mouse, unless she is on lunch, she never misses lunch!
The story, of course, is similar with Sherlock. He and his 3 brothers were left in a box on the door step of Cambridge Cat Hospital in early June, 2012. They had fleas but they also had fabulous, gentle personalities. Mouse seemed lonely and overworked, so we felt that Sherlock could stay at the clinic and help out with all of that meeting and greeting people! Sherlock's 3 brothers all went to great homes as well, in fact one of his brothers was hired to be a clinic greeter by the Woodstock Veterinary Hospital.
In the photo below you can see Sherlock's 3 brothers. Sherlock himself has a staring role in the website, his is the first photo of that cutie looking at you from the chair!
