Meet Our Housecats

Lois

Lois Lane

Lois Lane (AKA LoLo) was rescued by a client of ours. She had an unknown trauma resulting in loss of the use of her tail and incontinence. After a tail amputation and weeks of care, it became apparent she would always need to wear diapers and would need help expressing her bladder. Luckily for Lois, Miriam advocated for her and she won a spot on our feline team in 2012! Lois loves bossing the other cats (and people) around and has a nearly obsessive love of the laser pointer. This feisty little girl loves showing off her fancy pants and you can frequently find her behind the front desk or atop her cat tree towering above her minions!

Sparky

Sparky

Sparky (AKA Mr. Sparkles, Sparkleton) is our precocious team member who resides in our upstairs offices. He came to us in 2009 as a boarder but was sadly abandoned here as his owner never came to pick him up! We fell in love with him and his adorable personality so he became a resident. He would do silly things, like sleep in the mop bucket or climb on top of us and sit on our heads. However, we quickly found out that he does not like other cats so he went to live with the family of one of our technicians. He was quite mischievous and displayed some aggression issues there so he came back to live with us. He finally found his balance and is enjoying life behind the scenes in our management offices bossing around our administrative team and being our resident hero by donating blood to patients in need!
