Checkers

Boss Cat

Checkers is a 2012 model who has been a patient at GVC since she was a tiny kitten. In the summer of 2019, she began to suffer from environmental allergies. GVC took ownership of her after falling in love during some of her hospitalization stays over that summer. She was surrendered to us and we have never looked back. She is the perfect mixture of sweet and sour. She has the rare personality to be the perfect clinic cat - she enjoys the attention she receives from our wonderful clients and keeps her distance when necessary. She can usually be found lounging on Emma's desk or taking a nap in her window hammock in the reception area. She constantly keeps us laughing and we are so thankful she chose GVC as her forever home.
