Hi there! My name is Blink. The team at Mercier Veterinary Hospital call me their mascot, but I prefer these titles: Assistant Manager, Chief Greeter Extraordinaire, and Protector of the Cookie Jar. Either way, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself in this, my first official blog posting.
I grew up on a dairy farm in the Beauce region of Quebec, and when I was three months old I was adopted by a nice lady. I spent the next three years enjoying cuddles and more treats than I ever dreamed of, which might explain why I had to go on a diet… Sadly, my owner passed away this spring and Dr Gallagher, my vet from the very beginning, took me in. Although I miss her terribly, I’ve grown accustomed to all the new faces I see every day here at the hospital. There’s never a dull moment around here, let me tell you!
From time to time, I’ll let you know all about what my team and I are up to at HVM. And if there’s ever anything you’ve always wondered about the daily goings-on of a veterinary hospital, just drop me a line and I’ll suss it out for you. Oh, and if you have any spare treats lying around, do a cat a favour and throw them my way, would you?
