Clinic Cats

Momma

Momma

Head Clinic Cat

Momma has been a part of the Skyview crew since 2009. She came from the local Humane Society in Cape Girardeau. She was pregnant and we decided to let her stay and have her kittens here at the clinic. All her kittens found homes, but we fell in love with her and decided to keep her as our own. She welcomes clients lazily by sunbathing in the windows. Her biggest priorities are naps, getting wet food for breakfast, sharing lunches with the staff, and getting extra attention when demanded.
Bob

Bob

Assistant Clinic Cat

Our newest member came to us in 2018. Bob showed up in our clinic needing help due to a bad tail injury. The doctors decided to amputate his tail, in which he rightfully so earned his name. Even though he was skinny, full of fleas and in pain, Bob remained a cool, spunky guy. Everyone at your clinic fell in love with him and decided we wouldn’t let him go. He is now full grown and clearly the biggest personality we have at Skyview. He is eager to demand attention from every client that stops at the clinic. He often invites himself into exam rooms with patients in a cool and calm manner. He sometimes gets way too much catnip and will scale the halls or fertilize the indoor plants.

We’re devoted to your pet’s wellbeing.

The staff here at Skyview Animal Clinic is committed to providing your pet with excellent care and compassion.
