Animal Medical Center
Daisy, along with her two littermates, was left in a box on our doorstep one cold winter night in January, 2012. She quickly endeared herself with everyone at the office, and made herself right at home. She continues to amuse us with her antics and curiosity! There's no telling where you might find her. She's friendly to dogs and seems to help a lot of them relax while they are here for care. By the way, her two littermates also found excellent homes with our staff members. Yay!
By the way, Daisy Mae (being the trendy cat that she is), has her own Facebook page. Check it out and Like her!
