Tony - Clinic Cat
Tony was surrendered to the clinic in Sept 2016. He was supposed to be re-homed but he quickly found his way into our hearts and now takes up permanent residence at Granville. Tony enjoys sleeping on his cat tree, teasing dogs, trying to sneak into exam rooms when he is not supposed to and trying to steal treats.
Tony is forever trying to find another cat that will be his friend and not hiss at him. Sadly, this has yet to happen.
Tony loves people and enjoys his cheeks and face being scratched - but do not let him fool you, he does not like his belly rubbed!!
