  • Rocky
    Clinic Cat

    In his words: “Before I came to live at Johnsen's Animal Hospital, I used to live with one of their clients.  I roamed the outdoors and was constantly a victim to mosquitoes (I have the scars to prove it as I’m highly allergic to mosquito bites).  After many trips to the vet, I realized it was time to become my worst nightmare: an indoor cat.  Luckily the humans at Johnsen Animal Hospital took me in; it was the least they could do.  I now wander the clinic like John Wayne supervising all day.  My other activities include eating whatever I can find, sneaking into empty carriers, and taking naps in the most inconvenient places.  I will invade you and your pet’s personal space at times, so don’t be alarmed if you see me when you come to visit.  Feel free to give me treats and scratch my belly.  Just don’t tell the humans, it can be our little secret.  PS: Don’t really give me treats.  I’m on a strict diet and Bikini season is coming!  Thanks!”
