Found by a Good Samaritan, Sammie was brought to us as a kitten with a bad case of ringworm. After nursing her back to health, the staff decided that Sammie should stay and be the official mascot of Gladwyne Animal Hospital. Today, Sammie can be found barging in on appointments or sleeping soundly behind the front desk.
She was born on Flag Day, 2011.
She will yawn when you scratch her nose.
She chatters when she sees a reflection. Ask us to show you!
