"One cat just leads to another"

-Ernest Hemingway

Here at Laurentian Hills Animal Hospital, we understand how easy it is to get attached to fury little friends. Since opening, we have adopted our own pets that stay here at the clinic as each of them had ongoing medical issues that required attentive treatment. After caring for these little ones for so long, and seeing how far each of them had come we just couldn't let them go! Below are the pictures and stories of our cats that you may see wonder up to the front of the clinic from time to time. Please feel free to pet the cats if they come up front or up to you!

Griffin

Hi! My name is Griffin and I am a friendly, outgoing, extremely mischievous, naughty cat. I started my life a very sick little kitten rescued by Pet Patrol – not eating, diarrhea, lethargic, constant stomach bloating and uncomfortable. When I first arrived at the clinic I would sit in my bed with my duckie at the front counter and sleep all day long until the staff would then move me into the sunlight in the afternoon. After spending 6 weeks at the clinic, they fell in love with me so much that they adopted me and now I am a part of the family at the clinic.

Peachie Sunset

My sister Iris and I were both rescued by a wonderful lady Linda from a colony of feral cats outside of the St. Jacobs market. I had a severe eye infection from feline Herpes virus but at first I was a little fractious so it was difficult to give me my medication. I ended up staying at the clinic for my eye treatment and after a few weeks of growing close with Griffin, Iris and I were adopted as well! I am still nervous of strangers so I can be admired from a far down the hallway or through the front window.

Misty Iris

I am Peachie Sunset's sister, and was also rescued just outside of St. Jacob's market from a colony of feral cats. I came in to the clinic because I had a severe eye infection and ulcers from feline Herpes virus, but was also fractious and hard to treat. I stayed at the clinic for treatment with my sister until we got adopted and now this is my forever home. I am very shy and timid, so you likely won't see me unless you catch a rare glimpse down the hall. I am often hiding in the dental table at the back or curled up with Hank having a nap.

Hank

Hello, I am Hank! I came to see the veterinarian because my owner passed away and I had ongoing health issues that required treatment. I had severe flea allergy dermatitis, ear mites that left my one ear permanently damaged, and a urinary blockage that required a catheter and iv fluids. Since being adopted into the clinic, I have taken full advantage of the food availability so I have since packed on a few extra pounds. Although I am currently on a weight loss program, I often get asked if I am expecting. I am a very social guy so you will likely find me up front greeting customers and sunbathing.

Slinky Malinki

My name is Slinki and I was rescued through Pet Patrol due to bladder stones and a urinary obstruction. My previous owners hand fed me until I was surrendered so when I came into the clinic I didn't know how to eat on my own. The veterinarian then put in a feeding tube until one day I was out with the other cats and started eating by myself after watching them! I also didn't groom myself before but have gotten better and now I mostly keep my face and legs clean. Although I have terrible depth perception, I still enjoy life and love playing with everything but my toys. My favourite thing to play with is a piece of yesterdays news litter, and most recently a plain Timbit.

Billie

My name is Billie and I am the newest member of the family! I was surrendered to Pet Patrol for increased drinking, urinating around the house, and weight loss. During my vet appointment, I was diagnosed as a diabetic and stayed at the clinic to regulate my glucose levels and identify the correct dose of insulin for me. Sometimes it can be very difficult for rescue groups to adopt out a diabetic, but I have been lucky enough to join the other cats that live here at the clinic as well! I am very happy in my new home and thoroughly enjoy the variety of beds throughout the clinic. I love giving hugs and being held, so as I get more comfortable in my new home I will wonder up front from time to time for some love and attention.

Layla

Our lovely Layla was surrendered to us for inappropriate urination around the house as she suffered with chronic stress cystitis. Clients will remember her as affectionate, until she let them know it she had enough by giving them a wee swat. Layla was loved deeply and is now missed everyday.

Kimi

Our Kimi was a beautiful Japanese Bobtail who stayed at the clinic as well when she fell ill. Her owner worked long shifts and was gracious enough to allow Kimi to stay with us for the short time she had left in this world. She was the first clinic cat here at Laurentian Hills, and she is deeply missed everyday.
