cat, kitten, veterinarian



Crash is the official Freeport Veterinary Hospital Greeter! She came to us from Coastal Humane Society as a stray that had been hit by a car. She is quite a content older lady and can be found at the front desk snoozing or soliciting a pat or rub on the head from any willing human. Her favorite past times are keyboard interference and looking for treats.

Beauty Queen

Meet Coco!! Coco is another rescue who has lived with us for a few years now. Like all calico cats Coco has a very big personality and has won over the entire staff. Co adjusted to clinic life quickly and appears to have been born to be a kitty receptionist. Most of the time she can be found micromanaging the front desk, observing check in’s and out’s and making sure things are done right! When she takes a break from her hard job, she can be found napping at the front desk, finding any nearby watering hole and looking for the best food to eat.

Jimmy Choo


Jimmy Choo is a rescue cat who we have been hosting for quite some time. He is young at heart and like to cause lots of trouble. A LOT! His love/hate relationship with humans make him even peskier as he can be quite the moody kitty. He enjoys harassing dogs and our older lady cats and can often be found chewing up the toilet paper, scratching the walls, eating things he is not supposed to or snoozing on top of the fridge. There is never a dull moment in the clinic with Jimmy Choo around!
