Josie was one of our clinic cats for over 4 years. Sadly, in October of 2012 she became very ill, and we had to say goodbye.
She is our “microchip failure story.” She was brought to the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital as a stray, and as is our policy, we scanned her for a microchip. We were thrilled to see she had one, and told the Good Samaritans who brought her in that we would reunite her with her family. Unfortunately, the people who had microchipped Josie did not register their address or phone number with the microchip facility. We traced her microchip back and found that she had originally been adopted from the humane society 6 years prior at about 3 years of age. After a long, unsuccessful search for her owner, we decided that Josie could live with us.
Josie spent most of her time sleeping at the front desk or on top of the shelves in the pharmacy and became well known to our clients visiting the clinic. She was a true delight, always willing to share a purr and a head bump. She is still remembered fondly by our staff members who knew and loved her!
