After being hit by a car around July 3, 2017, he came to us with just damage to his right eye.  After no one claimed this extremely affectionate cat, we decided to keep him as a clinic cat.  Come to find out he is almost identical to our beloved and missed Ace, so we all believe he was sent by Ace to protect and love us.   

Ace – Our Beloved Ace

Ace was our oldest resident cat.  After being thrown from a moving vehicle, he was brought to the clinic in 2002.  After a rough beginning, he lived as a king expecting food when he wanted and all of the petting he could.  He was normally found on the receptionist counter or on the waiting room cushions waiting for loves.  Sadly, Ace crossed the Rainbow Bridge June 30, 2016 from cancer.
