Our beloved Hamlet passed away peacefully in October 2017. He was 21 years of age and had been with the hospital since its inception in 1997. He came from the vet tech college in Seneca as our hospital cat and his name came from the Name the Clinic Cat Contest at our Open House in April 1997. He was the original greeter to all clients as he loved to sit at the front desk in his supervisory mode. He has trained many staff members, 3 german shepherds and 4 hospital cats. He enjoyed his food including having lunch with Dr. Campolongo as she brought sandwiches with ham, turkey and egg salad. His absolute favourite though was Swiss Chalet chicken which today we still have in honour of him. As he became aged he was in the treatment room mostly, only ventured out front once in a while. His classic meow is on our facebook page. We will miss him dearly but he has forever made his mark at Rouge River Animal Hospital. Rouge River Animal Hospital is a better veterinary hospital because of him and will continue to be a place of compassionate care for our pets.
