All Knowing, All Wise, Supreme Ruler

We will miss you every day!


Stephen Sylvester Goodwin I was presented to us for humane euthanasia as his family could no longer care for him. We thought he was so charming (and he is!) that we got permission from his family to try and adapt him to hospital life. They agreed. And he certainly has! He seems to know just who needs a little kitty loving, most commonly he will hang out with our distressed clients. He has joined our staff roster in the reception area and our clients are becoming very familiar with him as our official greeter. We love him dearly and know you will too!
