Boss joined our crew in February and has made himself right at home. He spends his days calmly sitting in the lobby, on the clean laundry, or napping on any sunny windowsill (he is always sleeping on the job). He is very vocal and loves to tell us all about his day.
This is our newest associate, Catrick Swayze. Swayze is a curious little scamp that isnt afraid of anyone or anything. You can find him taking advantage of any lap he can find or doing wild kitten parkour around the building. He will take it upon himself to investigate the animals that come in and dont be surprised if he makes himself at home on your lap or shoulder.
