Spencer is 7 years young. He first bought this clinic by faking his heart disease and possibly contacting the TV lawyers, however he will not confirm or deny how he got his catnip treat money. He quit his first home and doc offered him a job saving him from boredom at the shelter. He definitely knows who owns the place. He has spent most of his life “working” as door greeter at the clinic or trying to steal patient’s treats. He has lots of experience with lots of other pets and treats them all with the same “are you going to eat that?” stare.
His hobbies include professional napping, disapproving stares, and eating as many times a day as possible. Garfield is his personal hero. When you come see us there’s a good chance he will be there to greet you in the lobby.
