Johnny aka "Johnny Cat"
Johnny came to us in the summer of 2015 as a kitten. He was found wondering in the back barn on a daily basis and after a week of sticking around he made himself comfortable inside the clinic and now spends his nights patrolling the property. In his free time he likes to sleep in his favorite bed on top of the refrigerator so he is able watch the FedEx and pet food delivery men coming in and out. Johnny's favorite part about living at AAHC is pacing back and forth in front of boarding dogs and of course the food & love.
