Feeling nostalgic. After the loss of our precious Willow, I've decided to share with you guys all the cats from our lives, even the cats from before smart phones! These cats (and our dogs too) have been such an inspiration to me and have helped shape my career path. They have provided me with photos, videos and most importantly unique experiences that have helped make me a better vet tech, behaviorist, groomer and educator. Each month I’ll attempt to feature a different cat! This will take me more than two years so please, meet our family in the stories below. I hope these stories inspire you to adopt, foster, donate or reach out for help to ensure your cat is living their best life!
Rescue one until there are none!
Thrashing Schwillow! Willow’s tale of rescue is, quite frankly, one of the stupidest things I have ever done in my life. It could’ve gotten me kidnapped, murdered or who knows what. One Saturday morning I was the first to arrive at the practice to open it up. I was in the back and heard a […]
One of my all time favorite photos of this dog! Taken the very next day after we rescued him-so happy! Beware of Bash! Sebastian became a part of our family after being dogless for a whole 13 months. We had been waiting and pondering about who our next giant would be, but nothing had stuck. […]
Samson came to us at 9 ½ years of age. I had known him since he was only 9months old, when he came to see me for his first grooming appointment. Samson was owned by an elderly couple who had never had a cat before. They purchased him from a breeder in South Georgia, and […]
Hitch and his bestie, Elsa! Adopting Elsa was truly special. I never thought in a million years I would have the opportunity to have a dog like her since I won’t buy a purebred anything, but then again, as we can see, so many purebred animals need rescuing too and boy did she, in a […]
Fluffy, Fluffernutter, Flufferschteen, Schteen, Butters, you name it, we called him pretty much anything but Fluffy. Still cannot believe we had a cat named Fluffy. But here goes… I knew Fluffy for a looooong time. I was his hair stylist for many years! He came to see me at my previous clinic as well as […]
One of his cleanest and most handsome pics Don’t laugh, but Crusty was found with a Fritos bag on his head! We affectionately referred to this as him being an “original forager”, bringing a real life meaning to what we know to be all about toys and enrichment at our house. He was foraging for […]
G.G. at the clinic, right by the door, greeting everyone. G.G. was originally named Gabrielle, but to us she was always G.G. or just simply, Geeg! Gabrielle was cute but a bit too formal for her once we got to know her. Boy oh boy, sometimes those oldies but goodies come along, and you don’t […]
Professional photo shoot pics. He made it into this family just in time for this shoot! Oh dear, I’m not even sure if I should tell Albert’s full story. Albert was one of the MANY clinic cats at the first cat clinic I worked in, as you can see, that job filled up my house! […]
Yukon during his professional photo shoot! Soakin’ up the love. Yukon was yet another animal found by my previous employer. She was pretty good at filling up our household! She lived far from the clinic in North Georgia and found Yukon laying near a tombstone in a graveyard in Elijay, Georgia, on Yukon Road…All of […]
Take one look at the pics and you will see the reason for her name. Not at all striving for inappropriate but I will share that my mother used to call handicapped parking spaces wheelie cap spaces when I was a little kid. Here is the story of our delightful, Wheeliecappers! Yes, I pluralize everything, […]
