Hazel, Clinic Cat Extraordinaire
Hazel joined the Heather Ridge Pet Hospital family in 2007. She was pregnant with four kittens when she was rescued, and after her kittens found their forever homes she decided to stay with us. Hazel is shy, but sweet. We like to think that if you see her you will have good luck the rest of the day. She is frequently napping in our closets and begging for food during lunch breaks.
Finn, Customer Service Representative
Finn is a 3-pawed cat that was brought in through All Cats Rescue. He immediately made himself at home, as well as cuddling up to Hazel. Finn became such a part of our family, and reminded us so much of Tyson (our first clinic cat) that we decided he could stay. Finn loves to take naps in our lobby and beg for treats.
