Dr. Spatz: Office cat/CAT scan Expert: Dr. Spatz came to us in the spring of 2013. Dr. Baird’s son had found a litter of kittens. After finding homes for all of the other kittens, Dr. Spatz was the last one left. We obviously fell in love with him and decided that he could have a home here with us. He is Mr. Personality! He is extremely curious which sometimes gets him in to trouble. He is also VERY loving and affectionate. He has been known to "dress up" on holidays and special occasions and some of his costume pictures have even been published! Thankfully, he hasn't let his "celebrity status" go to his head. 


Sir Eac: Office Cat/"Totally getting by life on his looks":  In July 2021 a litter of very sick and malnourished kittens, were abandoned at our front door.  We did our best to nurse them back to health and after finding loving homes for all of them that survived, Sir Eac never left. He and Dr. Spatz became instant friends, and we knew he had found his home with us.  He is VERY sweet but VERY mischievous and is definitely not the sharpest knife in the drawer.  He literally falls off of counters, tables, etc. on a daily basis! He is an absolute character and keeps all of us laughing.
