Resident Chief of Purr
Agency life can be STRESSFUL, which is why we hired Sally Jo, our Resident Chief of Purr. She spends most of her days lying in the sun or in our laps, and if someone is particularly stressful, she shows them how good of a job they are doing by licking their nose.
Please note - if you ever visit our office, Sally Jo does accept bribes ... in the form of soft chew treats that is!
