Our Clinic Cat



Edenwood Veterinary Clinic - Tiffin OH- Clinic cat Smalls


Mayhem wasn't named Mayhem because of his attitude, he was named Mayhem because he came to our clinic during all the mayhem of 2020. He has been the most perfect addition to help soothe all of our souls during this time. He is learning the ropes of being a clinic cat, which includes finding the sunny spots, lounging most of the day and putting up with being kissed - alot.  Mayhem loves to play with other co-workers cats when he gets the chance and he is also learning some dogs can make great friends. One thing for sure, he has learned it is way nicer to live inside than out on the streets.
