Rice

Beans

Hi, my name is Beans and I am one of the friendly clinic greeters. Me and my sister (from another mister) Rice are usually the first ones to greet our clients and their pets. I love food and will steal it out of your hand if given the chance…so be careful with your snacks when I am around! I’m also a little cross-eyed so I’m sorry if I appear to be staring at you, I’m probably trying to look in the other direction. I came into the clinic as a sick little kitten so they fixed me up and of course I wiggled my way into the hearts of everyone here so they decided to keep me forever…what suckers! I love playing catch with the girls up front, they throw paper up in the air and I catch it with my paws and throw it back to them…so much fun! I also love meeting new people and I can’t wait to introduce myself to you and your furry friends!

Rice

Rice

Hi, I’m Rice but they like to call me Rice-a-Roni! You will likely find me laying in my basket asking for belly rubs when you first walk in. I love my life as one of the clinic mascots; I get constant attention, treats and cuddles. I’m very well known for stealing dog treats out of the cookie jar, but hey I can’t help it…I have to maintain my womanly figure! I also have a lot of extra toes so I can get a really good grip on the cookies. Although I love my life here, I do try to go home with some clients, especially those with nice purses…so be careful leaving your purse open when I’m around because I might get in it. I’m a very good worker, I really enjoy helping the girls up front type the records but they always seem to delete what I write…the nerve of some people, don’t they know I’m only trying to help! Anyway, I have the purr-fect life here with so many servants to feed and pet me whenever I want. MEOWWW.
