Huck came to Circle C Animal Hospital in June of 2022 as a kitten. He has done a great job keeping the staff on their toes and he also keeps us laughing. He has not met a patient he doesn't like even if the feeling is not mutual. His special tricks are opening doors and stealing snacks. Many of his antics can be found documented on our Instagram page.
