BUDRO                  &         
               TYE

CLINIC KITTIES

Budro and Tye are our resident office kitties.  Budro travels around the clinic and outside most of the day, but if you want to see him all you have to do is eat, as he is quite the table scrap junkie!  He also doubles as our spare clinic heating pad, because he loves to snuggle up against cat-friendly patients recovering in Dr. Carey's office.  Tye is our clinic clown!  He loves to entertain folks in the waiting room with a friendly game of "bat the client."  Tye loves to fool around in the windows and blinds, oftentimes providing comedic relief for customers and passersby alike!
