Jabuchi

Jabuchi, our Office Tortoise, has been a fixture for several years. In 2011, she couldn’t eat, poop or walk. Dr. Hughes performed abdominal surgery on her, allowing her to eat and pass stool again, but her legs couldn’t function. Through physical therapy, her rear legs have regained some function and, recently, her front legs have begun to move again. She serves as a greeter to pets and clients alike.


Winston and Thomas

Important members of our staff include our Office Cats. Senior Office Cat Winston (foreground) was selected from a pool of over a dozen potential candidates at the Humane Society of Pinellas County in 2008. Office Cat Thomas (background) was brought in as a patient and stayed on as staff. Their jobs include greeting, comforting nervous patients and owners and, in Thomas' case, checking out the females.

Bob

Junior Office Cat Bob was recently discovered occupying a chair outside Laugerhaus Pub. He now occupies a softer chair in Dr. Hughes' office, where he spends pretty much his entire day and night. He accepts attention from anyone at anytime.
