scvh resident cat

Black Kitty is the official SCVH welcome committee!  She took up residence outside the clinic eight years ago as a feral cat.  Dr. Beck spayed her in 2007 and then would occasionally allow a “pet” on her terms.  She now comes inside and enjoys her days lounging on top of her condo, gazing at birds and saying hello to her fellow furry friends.  She is about 9 years old.  Her favorite treats are Temptations.  She loves head butts and long walks on the beach!
