Meet Birdneck Animal Hospital's latest Pet of The Month. Her name is Boatswain (pronounced boh suhn) and she is a beautiful Siamese cat. The name Boatswain comes from a navy term and she was so named because according to her owner "...she sails with me and is in charge of anchors and rigging."
Boatswain had been feeling rather poorly and actually ran away from home for a few days. Upon her return, she was depressed and not eating. Her concerned owner brought her to Dr. Johnson. We are happy to report that after a brief stay at our hospital while under Dr. Johnson's care, and the tender love and care of our staff, Boatswain is once again happy, healthy and her appetite has returned!
