Resident Cats

 

Daisy of Cheshire Cat Clinic, the premier provider of feline-exclusive veterinary care in San Diego, California  In memory of Daisy who left us on 10-22-16.

As the story goes, Daisy was originally from Mexico and lived at a truck stop. She would help the truckers eat their lunches. One day she hitched a ride to San Diego with one of them. Daisy became the official greeter at Cheshire Cat Clinic. She never found a lap she didn't like so we called her the "Lap-rotunist".

She was one of the sweetest most loving cats. She loved spending time with every one, especially with staff members during their lunches hoping for a taste of something delicious. Daisy will forever have a special place in the hearts of everyone who knew her and will never be forgotten.


Babies is a beautiful old flame-point Persian born July 4, 2000. He was brought to Cheshire Cat Clinic through a friend of a former employee. His owners just couldn't get his flea problem under control. He had a very resistant case of fleas. After his hair was shaved off, the flea control medications finally worked. He is a very sweet mellow and clingy cat. He does have polycystic renal disease of Persians so we are monitoring his kidney values closely. Babies even has his own "fan club". He earns his living by modeling his lion cut. Recently, Babies underwent a CAT Scan (no pun intended) and scoping of his nasal sinuses to help diagnose his chronic respiratory issues. UPDATE:  Sadly, Babies left us on Tuesday, May 29, 2012. We mourn the loss of our long-term. He was such a character, an unusual cat, unusual personality. People would come to Cheshire Cat Clinic just to visit him. In his later years, Janice, our veterinary assistant, took over his medical care and took him home permanently. He was only 11 but had had several severe medical conditions and lived more than 3 years longer than expected. He will be sorely missed. 

 

 

Dizzy of Cheshire Cat Clinic, the premier provider of feline-exclusive veterinary care in San Diego, California

In Memory of our Dizzy who left our world in January 2011.

Dizzy lived at Cheshire Cat the longest of our clinic cats. She was born in January 1990. She was originally a stray and had a bad inner ear infection when she was first brought to Cheshire Cat Clinic. The ear infection cleared up but she still "ran in circles" hence her name, "Dizzy". When she was younger, she was a blood donor for some of the sick anemic cats. Once she retired, she spent most of her time on our waiting room benches or begging for C.E.T. tartar prevention chews.

 

Hatchi of Cheshire Cat Clinic, the premier provider of feline-exclusive veterinary care in San Diego, CaliforniaIn Memory of our sweet Hatchi who passed in April 2010.

Hatchi, a male domestic shorthair, was born in August 1992. We acquired him in March 2004 when his 25 year old companion cat passed away. His owner was moving to Boston and could not take him. She brought him in to be euthanized but he was very healthy and not ready to leave this world. An agreement with his owner was made: to have us find a new home for him and she would contribute what the cost of the euthanasia would have been. Finding a home for an older cat has been very difficult.  Early 2008 he had bilateral hip surgery to correct degenerative hips and he went to physical therapy and has been regaining strength in his hind legs. This surgical procedure gave him many additional years of life, happily laying in his bed in the sun!
