Meet the Clinic Boss

Gator, the clinic boss

Gator, Persian

Gator joined our family in 2016 when Heather adopted her as a very sick kitten. She was the lone survivor from her litter.

The clinic is Gators second home, and she knows she's in charge of both. She has strongly influenced everyone to pursue Feline Friendly Practises and Low Stress Handling.

In her spare time she enjoys cuddling with her 3 other sisters at home, sun tanning and playing in the sink and bathtub.

She is also highly passionate in pursuing meowdeling, watching the squirrels through the window and being a nosey block watch supervisor for the neighbors.
