Our Staff



Landon - Official Office Kitty


Landon became our office kitty in 2016. He previously belonged to Dr. Walls, and helped keep mice out of her barn (but was mostly lazy). He was in an accident where he broke his leg, and had to be cage confined for 8 months. While he was recovering, all of the staff loved him and he became very spoiled! After months of rest and surgery, he made a full recovery! Because of his leg, he could not go back to the barn. He doesn't miss it, as Landon is happy to spend his time sunning himself in our front window and receiving lots of love from clients. If you stop in be sure to say hello to him!
