Bandit Emotional Support Animal
Hi, my name is Bandit. I am a Siamese cat who came to live at Vance Creek Therapy. I can’t tell you my age, but since I have nine lives, I think it’s irrelevant. My humans built me a beautiful barn, although the horses think it’s for them. They even put a cat tree and a fireplace in the Club Room for my buddies and me. People come to see the horses, but they stay for the warm companionship of us cats.
Flynn Emotional Support Animal
Hi, My name is Flynn. I am a yellow Tabby. I am a loving, friendly fellow who loves to play. My favorite thing to do is to sit on your lap and be petted. You can find me hanging out in the Club Room, keeping warm by the fireplace. Like Bandit said: people come for the horses, but stay for cuddle time with the cats!
