Emotional Support (Cats)

As the self-appointed Queen of the reception area, it is my job to keep an eye on the main floor of the salon. You will find me sleeping on my favourite chair most of the day (please don’t sit on me), or helping out at the front desk near the end of the day. If you are a Chosen One, I may jump on your lap, but please don’t pick me up. I have mellowed out in the last few years and you will know if I’m in the mood for pets or not. If you are allergic or uneasy with animals, I can join my sister in the communal staff area. Just let the staff know!

I can be quite shy, but if you approach me gently, I will take a nice scratch on the head. A sighting of me guarantees you 6 weeks of great hair!
