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.

Jimmy Choo

Security

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!
