Tiberius – King of the Clinic/Head Feline Resident/Boss #2/Clinic CEO
Tiberius came to us in December 2012 as a stray that someone brought in. After a while of trying to find him a loving family to go home with, we decided that he was just too sweet to leave us. He seemed so comfortable and relaxed here, like he was right at home already. There is a room set up for him in the kennel area with his food, litter box, and cat tree. We also put up bird feeders outside of the windows where he spends time bird watching. He enjoys greeting the clients and the patients throughout the day as well as napping in his many spots around the clinic.
