Figaro, also known as Fig, came to us in January of 2017. Fig was found with pneumonia in the woods as a feral kitten. We nursed him back to health and he became our hospital cat. He likes to nurse our hospitalized patients back to health and likes to lay next to them in their kennels. His favorite patients are rabbits. Fig likes to make homes out of copy paper boxes and loves to play fetch with his toy springs. Be sure to say hello next time you are in and toss around Fig's toy springs!
Newton, also known as Newt, came to us in May of 2017. Newt was found in Mercer County park as a very young kitten weighing only one pound. With the help of Fig, we nursed him back to health and he became best friends with Fig. Newt loves to nap on Dr. Fanders' desk and loves to eat bugs.
