  "C"linic "C"at - Owns the Clinic

CC arrived as a tiny kitten the size of your palm, found under a factory in Hallam. She was riddled in fleas and dirt and in need of some love and a home. CC's main interest is in the patches of sun in reception and sleeping on the backs of dogs recovering from surgery. As a young cat her sole purpose in life was to escape the front door of the clinic and run to her second home at the Hallam Park Cattery. She also enjoyed chewing through bags of pet food for sale on the shelves and was terrified of dogs. These days her interests are more typical with clinic cats around Australia and involve being grumpy and not handled. She overcame her fear of dogs and now fears rodents and hates other cats. She enjoys making herself comfy on the food shelves and pouncing on small dogs.
