Friendly Feline Mascot

Tinks the practice cat will often be the first to Tinks - Practice Catgreet people on reception. She was brought in as a pregnant stray in 2011, and despite attempts to rehome her, she seemed to be happier staying here. Her kittens were rehomed to staff and clients and are doing well! On hot days she may put her head around the front door, but she doesn’t like to go far. She adores Dreamies, catnip hearts and walking on the keyboards as staff write notes. If she really likes you she will jump on your back when you stand at reception and pretend to be a scarf.
