Mojo, RVC Greeter / Clinic Supervisor

Mojo came to us 8 years ago as a 1 year old kitten. Usually our clinic cats move along and find new homes but Mojo made his way into the heart of every staff member and we don’t know what we would do without him! He makes sure to investigate all our patients and makes sure his people are safe. He enjoys sleeping on his bed in our window, and cuddling with the employees. Mojo is an excellent father to all our orphaned kittens, ensuring they have their baths and learn how to play properly.
