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.
