  • Champ
    Clinic Cat

    'Champ' has been a member of BAH for almost 2 years now. Although he enjoys assisting with wellness exams and monitoring patients when coming out of surgery, his main interests are playing in the toilet water, knocking important papers off of the counter and sleeping on computer keyboards (but only when the keyboard is being used). In his spare time he enjoys playing with the many foster kitties we have here at the clinic that are up for adoption, hogging ANY and ALL catnip that can be found in the clinic and his favorite hobby, napping. Champ is a valued and trusted member of the BAH staff and we look forward to working with him for many years to come.
