Olive

Olive the Snow Shoe cat lives here at Grandview Veterinary Clinic and has been affectionately endeared as “The Clinic Cat.” However, we all know she is quite the assistant manager, helping to pay bills by laying on them.

She is a “little old lady” now at 17 years of age (although she acts like a mere 14-year-old), and happily spends the days of her retirement trotting around the clinic in her spunky manner, managing affairs, and snoozing in a warm bed wherever she finds one.

Before her retirement, she generously donated blood upon occasion to any feline patient in need of a blood transfusion; so many lives are attributed to her willingness to lend a paw.

Everybody who meets Olive loves her and her little furry purr. She always appreciates a nice chin scratch or rub, and she will sneak up behind you to rub against your leg to return her love.

She has been a veterinary technician for almost 28 years and still loves her job. She loves working with animals of all kinds but also enjoys helping people by helping their babies. Animals have been her lifelong passion because she understands just how a pet can be a special part of a person's life.
 

Juli loves working with all animals but holds a special place for Dachshunds. She currently has 2, one of which was born blind and deaf. But she doesn't let that slow her down, even going for leash walks with the gang. She is the oldest of the babies, at 8 years old, and is the second deaf dachshund she has owned. She lost her first after 15 years in 2011. She also has a dachshund/poodle mix and 2 cats that think they are dogs! All of her babies are special in their own way, and of course, very spoiled.
