Sweet Shemmi is our purrfect clinic cat! She came to us as a pregnant stray. Dr. Sran cared for her through her pregnancy, delivery and nursing of her litter! When all her kittens were quickly adopted, we realized Shemmi belongs at Allwest! You can most likely find her begging for treats, snoozing at reception or chatting with our clients!
