    Tangelo

    Tangelo came to Orchards Veterinary as a feral cat in the summer of 2012. Tangelo had a large infected wound from being attacked by a coyote. For two months he lived in the clinic while getting life-saving antibiotics and laser therapy. Eventually, Tangey became part of OVC, he is no longer a feral, and now lives in the clinic full time. Tangelo's favorite activities include lounging on warm blankets (after they come out of the dryer), eating any leftover dog food, and attacking techs when they're holding grumpy cats.

    Fun Fact: Tangelo is a blood donor!
