TINY TIM A.K.A. TIMMY

Timmy came to our hospital in 2007 after being hit by a car. A good samaritan brought him to us to help. Upon exam, we found that Timmy had a broken front leg as well as a broken pelvis.The couple that rescued him could not keep him, so Dr. Harris put a cast on his front leg and we him kept here to cage rest him until his pelvis was healed. He instantly won the hearts of everyone here. We convinced Dr. Harris we needed an office cat and sure enough he has been a hit ever since! Timmy's bones healed after many weeks of rest and cast changes. He now rules the office.   He loves every person and animal he meets and loves to greet people as they come in or you may find him in the doctors office relaxing in the chair or on top of the one of their desks.
