Dr. Magothy Von Howard (Maggie)
Dr. Maggie received her doctorate in "spider-toy catching" from the school of Hard Knocks in 2015. She is too lazy to perform any procedures, but frequently supervises the actions of the staff. These days she is particularly concerned with the functionality of the bair huggers and warming pads and insists on testing them out on a daily basis.
Maggie was brought to Spay Now as a starving, severely ill, stray kitten with severe neck wounds found on the side of the road in the summer of 2015. The staff fell in love with the kitten and refused to give up on her. Magothy now lives in luxurious splendor as a clinic cat and is thoroughly spoiled each and every day. She puts up with wearing ridiculous outfits with remarkable grace.
