Carl, the “top dog” around the clinic, graduated from the Cat Academy of “Hard Knocks” and joined us in 2016. Previously Carl attempted to work in a farm management position, but he had a hard time getting his subordinates in line, so he was transferred here to the big city of Asheville, where he has no problems keeping his staff under his paw. As a dedicated member of the team Carl will completely ignore dogs, staying just out of reach. He also likes to entertain our clients with his cute sit and high five. Carl’s favorite pastimes are napping in the sun and eating, eating and more eating!
