Something Else our Staff Says!

The best thing ever is the cat that meets me at the door with meows and rubs its body all over your legs and shoes; after being told the cat would hide and not be seen during our visits.

Another Yummy Tidbit our Staff Says!

Every day I go to work I get to interact with animals. Dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds.. No matter the animal, I love seeing them and giving them all the scritches I can. :)
