Nike –17 years old
September 8, 2022
Greeter, comforter, and medical assistant (certified CAT SCANNER) has quietly passed on calmly with medical assistance after a long, slow decline from organ failure.
Nike came to the Dayton Veterinary Clinic as a very small kitten in August of 2005. She promptly made herself at home, and made herself the "Boss".
Over the years, she became our primary client greeter and the face of the front desk. She was good at checking out people, usually their purses. In the exam rooms she checked out cats, dogs, and all creatures alike. She had a way of knowing which critters to visit from afar.
She often comforted people who were having a sad moment in our clinic, with a gentle headbutt or snuggle, she let them know that everything would be alright. She took her job of "meeting and greeting" very seriously and she excelled.
However.. her receptionist skills still needed work. She often rolled across the keyboard and lounged on top of it, sending the computer program into a tizzy, printing random papers and opening a million pop-ups. She was never good at recording messages for the Doc's or returning client phone calls but she still let us know, she was running the show.
There will never be another like Miss Feisty Nike and she will be missed dearly by all who knew her. Over the rainbow bridge but forever in our hearts.
