Leonard Square has been dutifully performing the job of “clinic cat” since spring of 2012. He is a friendly fellow, often interested in investigating our canine and feline patients alike. He may pester you into petting him if you happen to be at the front desk, but don’t feel slighted if you miss him – one of his favorite pastimes is letting himself into the cabinet for a nap among the blankets.
