Our Resident FurBabies
Night Fury was found as a very tiny kitten by one of our employees. He was believed to have followed her cat home and was clearly in need of a family and medical attention. The LPC team nourished him back to full health. He formed a very special bond with some of our staff members and enjoys daily kisses and lounging on the office chairs. He was named after the animated character “Toothless” who is a night fury dragon, because of his feisty personality, yellow eyes and black coat.
Sheldon & Penny
Sheldon & Penny were found on the side of the road with mama cat nowhere to be found and brought in by one of our clients. We were happy to take them in and give them the medical attention they needed. These two little babies had a terrible virus that infected their eyes so badly that Sheldon's right eye and both of Penny's eyes had to be removed. Thanks to our very own surgeon, Dr. Leigh, they went through the surgeries with flying colors and have grown up to be healthy, happy cats. Our entire staff fell in love with these kittens. Sheldon is quite the boy cat always causing mischief, he is an attention hog, while Penny is calm, quiet and very sweet. She moves around the hospital like she can still see and surprises us daily with her independence.
