Meet Ninja, the newest member of our Team. He was very lucky to have found US!! We are not sure of his background other than he is quite old and in need of some good old TLC of which he has plenty of these days. His favourite pass time other than eating is sitting on the air conditioning vents to keep warm.
We are sure Oddy would approve of Ninja taking over the very important role of Pussy Cat relations at our clinic.
