What more of a purrfect welcome to our hospital could you receive than being greeted by our Clinic Cat/Mascot, Sammie the cat? Sammie serves as a professional greeter in the front of our lobby here at Forest Glen Animal Hospital and can be found often sitting on the refrigerator in the back. Sammie also helps oversee hospital flow and enjoys having the largest group of dog and cat friends, including their people caregivers.
Sammie joined the Forest Glen team in 2011, after achieving a Masters in Phantompawology. One of the other jobs Sammie has held includes being a professional housecat. Some of the unique attributes that Sammie brings to our hospital include having a soft and hairy body that keeps him and his human friends comfy and provides warmth. Sammie is also very helpful in calming down his human companions with his gentle purring.
“I love working here because of all of the things I get to see every day and getting to meet all the cool dogs and then antagonizing the cats because they're in my house,” Sammie says. “In my free time, I groom myself, I've dabbled in professional modeling on the side, I love rolling around with my toys with catnip and caressing my humans' faces when I snuggle with them.”
