We would like to take a moment to wish a very happy belated birthday to a very familiar face, our Clinical Specialist, Liz! 🎈

We love Liz for so many reasons, but did you know that she is a mother of 2, has lived in Greece, France, and Portugal, AND adopts pregnant cats and brings them home so they can give birth comfortably in her home?

Happy birthday, Liz! We are so lucky to have you!
