Memorial for Mudd

Clinic Cat

Mudd was a much-loved member of Eastside for over 12 years.  He was the most beautiful chocolate brown kitty and when people saw him, they often remarked on how they had never seen a brown cat before!  He had quite the attitude and was very photogenic!  Despite the very best of care, Mudd lost his battle with kidney and heart disease in 2023.  He will always be loved and missed by many.
