Cool Cats

Bob  photo


Bob is another one of our overindulged practice cats. His favorite spots include his “consultant’s stool” (above) and the perch in the crook of the window overlooking the lawn. Bob, like Penelope, does not have to punch a clock. He’s always on duty.

Penelope loves it here at Skadron Animal Hospital. And why not? Where else can you have the run of an office along with a pipeline to an unlimited assortment of treats? Look up “spoiled cat” in the dictionary and you will see this picture of Penelope.

Raja is a frequent greeter to those entering the animal hospital. Her favorite pastime is bird watching.
