Meow! I’m Garfield. My journey started when I showed up at the Potorti barn one summer day as a handsome Tom Cat. I played hard to get at first, and then decided I would let the hand that was feeding me also pet me (but only on my terms of course). All was going great until one day when I found myself stuck in a trap. My right paw was stuck and after struggling and struggling to get loose I finally got free and made my way back to the barn. Although I didn’t’ realize it at the time, I was mighty lucky to have picked a veterinarian’s barn to show up at. They captured me and next thing I knew I was waking up from surgery and missing the lower part of my injured right front leg. Ever since then, I have been residing at BVAH and have become rather famous around here.
Throughout the day I usually stay out at font desk in the morning, sleeping on my throne and supervising Jen and Beth. I also spend part of my day roaming around the treatment area laying on the numerous desks right in front of the keyboards and annoying everyone!
My favorite part about BVAH is all the treats the staff members feed me. I am supposed to be on a diet but it is hard for them to resist my begging.
Outside of Supervising the clinic, I enjoy eating, napping and just being downright annoying to everyone….it’s what acts do. I am known to hop in a cage and eat anyone’s left over food if given the chance! I hope the staff realize how lucky they are that allow my presence to be felt throughout the hospital!
