Toonces

Toonces

Resident Team Member
Toonces (affectionately known as Tooncie or T.T.) is our well-loved clinic cat. She may bear a resemblance to Grumpy Cat in this photo, however grumpy definitely doesn't describe her personality! She is an incredibly sweet girl who loves attention. Tooncie can often be found daintily eating her treats or snuggling in for a long nap in her cozy basket after an exciting morning of scouting out the action in the clinic and keeping all of us in line!
