Kitten seeks help at the veterinarian’s clinic but ends up taking charge of the facility
An emergency visit was made to Warwick Vet Hospital in Perth, Australia, for a 4-week-old orange tabby. When he first arrived, he was exhausted and had trouble breathing.
Staff restored his small body by providing oxygen therapy right away. “After x-rays, we learned that he had pneumonia. His right lung was seriously weakened, but both of his lungs were impacted, a vet nurse named Kate Hayes told Love Meow. “We immediately began giving him antibiotics. Although they weren’t his favourite, they were required.”
The kitten, also known as Bobby, rested a lot the first few days to aid in his body’s recovery. His sparkling eyes then started to glow. His personality also changed. The small tabby was trying to make friends with everyone at the clinic as soon as he recovered. He would climb all the way up his people onto their shoulders and release his inner bird.
He would happily offer to cuddle an empty lap before tearing around the area like he was its owner.
Bobby would softly curl up in his comfy cat bed and rub his blanket till he fell asleep to the sound of the arrival when he became tired from all the activities. “He won the hearts of everyone at the clinic.”
“We found that his right lung is too damaged to ever re-inflate. We showed him his test results and x-rays. Despite the news, he chuckled. He put up an incredible fight to survive, winning our hearts in the process, Kate continued.
When a staff member wants a break or a kitten fix, Bobby likes to raise his paw from his nest and hold hands with them.
Bobby will always require extra caution because he only has one functional lung. The Warwick Vet staff chose him as the official Clinic Cat because they have the resources necessary to care for him. Now a regular at the business, Bobby takes great pride in his work.
Bobby now spends his days watching cat TV on YouTube and playing games on the staff members’ phones. Moon, Kate’s dog, who frequently visits the clinic, has taken on the role of Bobby’s mentor and been teaching him how to operate the front desk and other clinic equipment.
Bobby is a pro at welcoming customers at the front desk, helping out the staff, and keeping an eye on the feline patients who need some company.

“He has begun monitoring patients at the hospital. Sesame and Peanut were there for their desexing treatments. The entire time they were in the hospital, Bobby maintained a very careful check on them.” Additionally, he made no attempt to take their meals.
Moon is taking a backseat while keeping a close eye on his young pupil as she manages the front desk.
“From the moment Moon came, he was Bobby’s guardian. Bobby is now firmly in his adolescent years. Although Moon occasionally feels like Bobby is pushing his limits, he is so fun with Moon and, like the wonderful boy that he is, Moon just takes it all in place.
The tabby youngster has made everyone happy. He is still that adorable kitty cat, only he is now bigger and cuddlier.
