    I'm The Cat Champion for VCA Cat Hospital of Philadelphia. I've always loved cats and this led me to Harcum college where I earned 2 Associates degrees. I have since then made a special effort to work with cats and I've been at the Cat Hospital for a little under a year now.  I have 4 cats, Tony, Daisy, Icee, and Alaska.
