Ava: Office cat/”The Boss”/Paper Weight  Ava: Office cat/”The Boss”/Paper Weight: Ava is an approximately 12 yr old domestic shorthair. Shortly after opening EAC, Ava was abandoned at our front door in a carrier, in rough shape and very obese. After unsuccessfully trying to locate her owner, she became part of the EAC family. She has since been on a diet and has lost 9 lbs! You can find her lounging in the reception chair or on the front counter. She is our little “Diva”!

Lily: Office cat #2/”The Bad One”  Lily: Office cat #2/”The Bad One”: Lilly is an approximately 4 yr old domestic medium hair. In the fall of 2009 Lilly was abandoned at our front door in a carrier with 6 newborn kittens and a prolapsed uterus. She was in very bad shape and needed emergency surgery. Sadly, after much effort, none of the kittens survived. Lilly has been here ever since. She is the playful but stealthy resident cat. If something crashes or gets broken, Lilly is usually the culprit! So far things are working out well as long as Ava is still in charge.
