Jennifer is the senior staff member at Companion Animal Hospital. She has worked here since May of 1999. She likes to read and go to movies. She has two adopted stray cats, Cali and Marian (Sophie's sister).
Sophie came to us in an unusual way. A client adopted a stray cat and brought it in to be spayed. Dr. Allen determined that the stray was pregnant and the client took the cat home to let her have the kittens. Born in April of 2005, Sophie was one of those kittens. She is very shy and does not like to be held but she is very friendly to all who visit her.
Dr. Allen adopted Abbey from the City of Irving Animal Shelter in April of 2006. He brought her to the clinic intending to adopt her out to a deserving family. As it turned out, Abbey hit it off with Sophie and adjusted so well to the "clinic life" that we decided to keep her. She is a very sweet cat but she does like to get into trouble.
Albert came to us in 2012 as a stray. He is very outgoing and loves people and even dogs. He has been known to jump up on an exam table to help look over dogs. He isn't as fond of other cats, at least at first.
