  • Independence (^.^)
    Clinic Cat

    This lucky kitten was found by Dr. Parish's daughters while they were watching fireworks July 4, 2018. 'Indy' was dehydrated, very thin, had a severe case of ear mites, and an upper respiratory infection. Her eyes and nose were crusted shut -she was breathing through her mouth. Dr. Parish cleaned her up and started treatment. She has been with the team ever since. We just adore her!
