Wilma and Flint(stone)
Office Manager and Assistant Manager

Wilma (Pictured left) was born in April 2013 outside of Aberdeen, Washington. Wilma has been lounging around dozens of veterinary hospitals in the Puget Sound Area. She grew up with a large Pitbull and is a professional fetcher and loves to have her belly rubbed. Wilma also sleeps on her face; causing her whiskers to point up and inward. 

Flint (Pictured Right) was born in March of 2017 in Snohomish, Washington. Flint is Wilma’s right hand man and hasn’t quite developed respect for personal space; but Wilma doesn’t mind. You will often catch him perched on the back of chairs or sleeping in sinks. His favorite food is tomatoes, and he dislikes catnip.

In 2021, “Barney” joined our family, a long-haired Persian kitten that likes to sleep in high places. “Barney” loves to wrestle with his sibling cats.

Both Flint and Wilma are stem cell patients! Wilma has congenital liver disease and a heart murmur while Flint has a clean bill of health. Our hope is to contribute to the regenerative medicine community by collecting data when they are in need of treatment.
