Clinic Cat

Groucho Clinic Cat

Groucho is a handsome black and white domestic short haired kitty that entered our lives in 2015. He was brought in for boarding by his previous owners because he needed to be medicated for allergies and unfortunately, they never picked him up. Fortunately for us, we gained a great companion.

Groucho got his name from his moustache. He is named after Groucho Marx, who was a comedian and actor back in the day. We are always shocked when clients recognize where his name came from. We had to google it, and yes there is a resemblance.

Groucho loves to dress up for all the holidays. He is so proud of his Halloween costumes and Christmas collars. He parades around the clinic proudly showing off his latest fashions.

Groucho has his fan club in the Grande Prairie community. He is so unique that people stop by the clinic each week to have cuddles with him! He seems to know when people are sad and will get up from his bed and come over for a snuggle.

If anyone told us back in 2015 that this black and white cat was going to be such a large part of our work lives, we wouldn’t believe them. This little cat has a special place in each of our staff’s hearts, and we could not imagine work without him.
