Trouble came to us as a 6-month-old stray--a neighbour saw her frantically trying to get back in to her owner's home and after several days, he could not stand to watch any longer and brought her in to us. Well, Trouble is not shy about expressing her feelings--she screamed! and ate! and told us all how mad she was about being locked out. The door can be opened and Trouble will not venture one toe outside. She is quite amusing--watching appointments through the door windows, batting her front paw through the bottom of the door, asking for taps to be turned on for a drink, sitting on clients laps and checking out purses for a snack. Not a snuggly type, she prefers to be admired from a respectable distance but does allow for pats and massages...and treats.
Patches was rescued by the OSPCA in the spring of 2013 when she was approximately one year of age. When she was taken for a veterinary check up, they realized her right eye was so damaged, it would have to be removed. Shortly after her surgery, Patches came to our clinic to be adopted through our partnership with the Muskoka SPCA. While she was here, Patches became very ill and required more surgery and treatments. We completed the surgery and kept Patches at our clinic for future monitoring of her health. She is a wonderful addition to our clinic, very loving and chatty!
