Frankie joined us early in 2010. He was found as a stray and was a very tiny kitten when he arrived, no more than six weeks old. He had the most vivid blue eyes and one of our nurses named him Frank (Sinatra!) and the name stayed with him.
At this time Paddy our resident cat was living out his last few weeks with us as he had terminal cancer. The two of them lived together in the cat ward and on the last day of Paddy's life they were both curled up together in Paddy's bed. It seemed like a sign to us and Frankie stepped up into Paddy's 'paws' to be our 'clinic meet and greet' cat.
You may see him in the waiting room as you arrive.
He will often come out to see what is going on and spends most of his days supervising the care of our patients out the back. He is not a cuddly boy but does enjoy company and just sitting alongside staff members and patients.
