Sunridge Veterinary Clinic

Meet Our Team


Lola 

Clinic Cat / Ambassador

A couple of months after the death of our beloved clinic cat Cyclops, Lola showed up at Kamila's house and decided she was not going to leave. Not even Kamila's rambunctious Labrador or her territorial cat could scare Lola away. Kamila brought her into the clinic with the intent to trace her owners, but after many failed attempts, Lola decided she was already home. She immediately made herself comfortable and became a permanent staff member. Lola is proving herself to be one of the hardest working members of staff and has assigned herself many duties. These include: Keeping our chairs warm, laying on files as we are trying to write in them, batting at our heads and meowing loudly every time we try to talk on the phone (she always has something important to add to the conversation), greeting our cat patients with a friendly meow and sniff, yowling and hissing a greeting at our canine patients (they need to be told how to behave) and most importantly, giving lots of snuggles. If you stop by the clinic, say hello to Lola. She is sure to give you a very warm welcome.
