The Vets office I used to work at has an office cat named Crash
. His former owner couldn't afford the bill after he got his leg smashed up by a car. The orthepedic surgeon saved his leg (its a bit crooked and had to be de-clawed) and the staff was very enamored with him so they kept him and dubbed him Crash
He's a ball of trouble and not very bright either!
Since then (living in the Vets' office) he's managed to electrocute and poison himself! By wedging a paper clip in an outlet and eating a dangerous plant a client brought in before the staff could check it.
We like to joke that he either got his brains wacked out by the car or zapped by the electicity.
He's down to 6 lives at this point, but the AH is probably the best place for him given his accident prone ditzy nature. While I was working there he snuck into the dog kennel and nearly got licked to death by an employee's pit bull puppy (fortunately he chose one of the nice dogs!) He was all glued together by spit when we freed him. He walks up to the most aggressive dogs just to taunt them (I saw him headbutt one once). Flings toy mice (that they sell) over the front counter for fun...etc...etc....
Just warning you, there's a lot of interesting karma that goes with this cat name...
