Calvin - Clinic Mascot/Supervisor
Calvin came to us in August of 1995 in a litter of kittens that were abandoned at Lesh's Travel Center. He was so cute we couldn't let him go. We had just lost our previous clinic cat Cedric who was 15 years old, so Calvin became a welcome addition to the family. His interests include food, sleeping on the wet table (preferably with a fluffy blanket on a heating pad), sleeping on the computer and chairs in the lounge, begging someone for his Laxatone and checking on his "patients." He is completely content in hanging out in the treatment room and lounge but after the doors close at night he will come up front and "check" on his girls. He has his own page on our website called "Calvin's Pad" that has some useful information and fun facts.
