Confessions of an Office Cat

Now, I know what you’re thinking, “All work and no play makes Courtney a dull cat.”  However, Courtney finds time to enjoy the best of both worlds as one of North Shore Animal League America's office cats, who currently calls our Volunteer Office home.

Her shift starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. as she shakes off her evening slumber.  She is ready to greet the first of her coworkers with a boisterous yowl, exclaiming that she is ready for her morning feast.  Once Courtney’s belly is full, she hops onto her computer chair, ready to work alongside her coworkers.  She cuddles into her favorite lime blanket as the clicking of keyboards lull her into an afternoon nap, but of course, she sneaks in some playtime with her favorite teaser tail.

Although Courtney has been promoted to Volunteer Office Cat, she did not always carry such a prestigious title.  Courtney was first adopted from Animal League America as a kitten, but sadly returned after the passing of her owner.  Upon taking Courtney back in, the staff at the Alex Lewt Veterinary Medical Center began to notice a change in her health, changes that had gone unnoticed while she was in her home. Courtney was later diagnosed with a heart murmur and thyroid condition.

After a long and rocky road, our Medical Center staff finally solidified Courtney’s medicine regime.  A few weeks after that, this special needs girl was promoted to Office Cat!  Now, Courtney enjoys her new position by greeting visitors, receiving chin rubs and relaxing in her computer chair.  Although Courtney has enjoyed working full-time, she is ready to retire and spend the rest of her days cuddling on your couch!
