The Office Cat
Scarf was born and raised in Orange County before coming to the Hospital as our Office Cat after his Dad, Dr. Seat, saved his life. He graduated first in his class from Cuteness University, and received his Degree in Cuddle Bug with a minor in Snuggler. He is our official greeter and therapy cat who you will most likely find sitting on our front counter sleeping. He enjoys eating, purring, giving hugs and spending time with his girlfriend Misty, our other "unofficial" office cat. You can follow their adventures on Instagram at @Scarf_the_office_cat.
