Klover's story at the Bountiful Animal Hospital began one uneventful fall afternoon. Some accounts say Klover was raised by owls and abandoned at the clinic because she could not fly, others say she was tiring of her life as a vagrant and wanted some better prospects. We typically go with the second story.
Anywho, upon that fall afternoon Dr. Martin's son discovered a small, furry thing living beneath a storage shed outside the clinic. It was rather hairy, and stripy, with wild yellow eyes and grayish fur on its legs and tummy. Upon taking in the little stray creature and giving it a much-needed bath, it was found that the wild little thing was in fact a cat, estimated to be roughly six months old.
When nobody came forth claiming ownership of the little cat, and with everyone in the clinic vouching that she should stay, Klover was spayed and became a permanent resident and the clinic cat (and possible co-owner) of Bountiful Animal Hospital.
Klover's favorite activities include eating, meowing plaintively, hiding in random boxes, finding new ways to make messes with kitty litter, and conspiring against her co-workers. We suspect Klover is an Aries, judging by her estimated birthday in April.
