Office Pets

Belton John

Belton John- Tripod Extraordinaire

Belton has been with us since September of 2021. He was surrendered to us with a broken leg that needed amputation. He is about a year old, and is living his best life here at the clinic. He loves any kind of cat treats, his favorite toy is a paper ball, and he gets plenty of snuggles from all of the staff here. You'll usually see him creeping in the hallway to greet you and your pet, but is still a little standoffish.

Mrs Ronnie

Ms. Ronnie

Ms. Ronnie has been with us since 2013. He is our sweet barn cat, and the best mouse hunter around. He screams at us every morning to let us know it's time to feed him. He comes in and out of the clinic for snuggles, and very politely asks for food scraps when we're eating lunch. He is a male, but he was given the name "Ms. Ronnie" by Dr. Dac and Neysa's daughter Aleigh. She named her after her favorite teacher in school when she was little.
