Winx

Winx is our one-eyed big cat. He is always on a perpetual diet and spends his free time figuring out how to get more food. When there is no food available he chews on plastic medical equipment. We love the big goof anyway.

HOSPITAL CAT

Lost his eye as a baby kitten.

Will always be a fat cat no matter what we do.

Mouse

Mouse is the youngest of the herd that we have. He is madly in love with Michele and on days she is not around he pines away for her. He has one bad habit.....he tears coats and bags just for the fun of it and sometimes the feathers inside them. His nemesis is Blue our hospital bird.

HOSPITAL CAT

Scared of his own shadow.

He is a true hunter. It is in his DNA.

bird in hospital

Blue

Blue was found in the street one day and came to stay. He screams like a banshee when we trim his wings and nails but other than that he sings and talks and blows kisses at all of us. His cage is a castle and he has some friends that come and board with us periodically.

HOSPITAL BIRD

Loses tail feathers to Mouse every now and again.

His secret love is a bird named Poncho that boards with us when her parents are away.
