Our Clinic Cats  


Edenwood Veterinary Clinic - Tiffin OH- Clinic cat Jazzie


Jazzie is our female cat that just appeared one day in the woods behind the Clinic in 2004. She was young but after a little TLC, Jazzie knew she had found her new home. She is known to climb right up on the lap of our clients, particularly those who don't like cats! Jazzie is a typical cat that only wants attention on her terms and she will let you know when she's done. You may notice that Jazzie's tail is a little short- she had to have it amputated after we discovered the tip of her tail was injured and bleeding. Jazzie loves to drink straight from the faucet, especially the hot water faucet in our surgery suite - which she can turn on (and off) all by herself! Most of the time she is found sleeping in a drawer in the office.



Edenwood Veterinary Clinic -Tiffin OH- Clinic cat Linden


Linden is another Clinic cat - he is a long haired handsome big boy! Linden moved in with us when his previous owner passed away in 2008. He was 7 yrs old then and had been with his owner since kittenhood. Linden was very nervous and shy when he first came. He would often open the cabinet doors in the back and stay hidden/sleeping almost all day. Since then, Linden has grown much more comfortable here and has even taken to bossing Jazzie around. Linden still doesn't care for the dogs and he is seldom in the waiting room where our clients can pet him. Linden's favorite spot in the whole Clinic is on top of the refrigerator.  If you get a glimpse of black fur up there - yes, that's a real cat and yes, he really is that big! Unfortunately, Linden is too chubby to jump up on the countertop to access the top of the frige, so he'll sit on the floor and stare at us - until finally someone gives in and lifts him up. Linden is on an ongoing diet and exercise plan and he is a constant reminder to us how difficult it can be to get our pets to lose weight. 



Edenwood Veterinary Clinic - Tiffin OH- Clinic cat Smalls


Mocha is the furriest of our family of felines who reside at Edenwood Veterinary Clinic. Mocha fit right into the busy life of a vet clinic. She could care less about the other cats or any of the animals that come and go through our doors. Mocha, with her beautiful blue eyes, keeps watch on everything that goes on, from the countertop. She helped to re-arrange the supplies inside a cupboard so many times that we gave up and moved the supplies so she can have that shelf all to herself.
