Hello, My name is Daisy. I’m 15 years old and the one and only hospital cat. I love it here at Alpine. They play with me and give me outside sun time. Things I can’t live without = A comfy fluffy clean bed and food!
I love any kitty food and love to eat 24-7. I have gained about three whole pounds. And love it! Grooming is my favorite pass time…Especially under the sun.
