Victor Wigglesworth (Reception Supervisor)
Victor is a handsome senior resident cat who came to us in 2009 as a stray with urinary tract troubles. He was treated and has had no further episodes since (knock on wood)! Victor loves belly rubs but prefers his tail to be left alone. He can be found sitting on top of the reception desk or at the window ledge in the staff room.
Bridgette Wigglesworth (Trouble Maker)
Bridgette came to us as a kitten in 2011 when a caring client found her hiding outside under a bush. Bridgette loves to chase paper balls thrown for her (by the staff and clients!) and will bop dogs on the face when they get too close. She can always be found at lunchtime looking for a cuddle session with one of the staff who is trying to eat their lunch.
Gilbert Wigglesworth (Greeter)
Gilbert was found in 2012 by another caring client in a dumpster with his brother Ozzy (who is now happily owned by one of our RVTs, Julie). Gilbert can be found napping on top of the reception area cat tree with a purr that never stops.
