In Memoriam


Yoda, an old hairless Sphinx, was the clinic overlord until she passed in the spring of 2022. She had been holding down the front printer since December of 2007. Yoda’s favorite activities were sleeping anywhere warm, hiding in any blanket she can find, standing on peoples shoulders and begging for food at all hours. She will be deeply missed.
