Crook & Chase, Clinic Cats

The friendly furry faces that greet you at Animal Doctor are Crook and Chase. These two pranksters may look similar, but they have very distinct personalities. Crook is the “evil twin” and is so named after the crook in his tail from previous trauma. Chase is his sweet, mischievous, more svelte brother. Crook and Chase were adopted by the Animal Doctor family in 2008 as sick kittens that stole a place in our hearts. You can often see them hard at work around the clinic!
