Ninja was born sometime around 2012 and came to Brighton Veterinary Hospital as a stray.  He clearly found a calling, teasing the other animals that come into the clinic and so has never left!!  He is known as the "lunatic" of the clinic.


Scooter came to Brighton Veterinary Hospital as a stray with a badly broken leg that had healed wrong.  She was so pleased with her leg amputation and her new lease on life that she decided to stay for good!  She was approximately born in 2003 and so is now considered to be a "senior citizen".  Old age looks good on her as she has decided to now become a lot friendlier.  She may even come and say hello to you!
