Surface Creek Veterinary Center - February 2020


might look a little different, but it’s just scarring that makes it look cloudy, and I can mostly see out of it. I don’t like big dogs or loud people. Loud noises make me want to jump up somewhere high and be by myself, usually in my favorite spot, the sunny window in Dr. Susie’s office. Since coming to Surface Creek, I’ve found my best friend, Stevie the shorthaired black cat. Sometimes we play fight, sometimes we chase each other, and sometimes we sleep. Sometimes he’s not very nice, but I know it’s just because he thinks it’s his office. Contrary to the stereotype, I’m not very curious. Sometimes I go outside the clinic and roll in the dirt, but I never stray more than 10 feet from the door. Then I run back inside. I don’t like to go anywhere else. This is home for me.

lients Spreading the Word Thanks so much to these clients who referred new patients to us the past two months: Thanks to Dr. Susie and Dr. Jeff, I got better. They still had to take one of my eyes out to save me, but I felt so much better after that. My other eye This month, our team member spotlight has gone to the animals. Our friendly office pets are taking over! First up, we’re letting one of our resident felines take the spotlight. Here’s Peekaboo the cat to tell you more about himself, what he loves, and what he’s not such a fan of. Hi, I’m Peekaboo, and I live at Surface Creek with Dr. Jeff and Dr. Susie. They saved my life, and I am very happy to be here. A great vet is one who makes you not scared and who makes you feel better, just like Dr. Susie and Dr. Jeff. When I first met them, I was only a week old. Someone found me outside, and I was pretty sick and scared. I couldn’t see anything because my eyes weren’t open yet, and they had an infection.

Here’s my picture after I found a spot that everybody missed with the duster! I call it warpaint.
