 CVC Housekeeping...

Compassion Veterinary Clinic housekeeper, Meghan Aucoin holding Pong, a resident cat at CVC, who hates to be held.


Meghan Aucoin
Housekeeping Supervisor

Added to our staff in November 2010, Meghan is indispensible.  She has a keen eye for detail and a skill for organizing and removing clutter that tends to build with a mind of its own.  Pets recognize her as an animal lover and are very comfortable around her.  She can often be heard talking to the boarders and it almost sounds as if they are talking back. 
Always willing to give a helping hand when needed, Meghan is very much appreciated by all the staff.

When she is not at work, Meghan is with her family.  Her husband, Mike, is a technician here, and she has two beautiful, young children.  Her last child she delivered by herself, in a truck at the hospital parking lot, as a family member ran to get some help. She managed just fine, which shows what a remarkable woman she is.

Meghan is also a talented cake decorator and would like to market her skills in the future.  


Flipper at 12 weeks old


Resident Cat and Helper

In 2001, a stray kitten, approximately 11 weeks old, was brought to Compassion Veterinary Clinic by a concerned client.  His tail was badly injured and required amputation.  The remaining tail and its expressive movement earned him the name, Flipper.

Flipper is a true 'scaredy cat' and is afraid of loud noises and strange places.  He is also the darling of the clinic, for he lives to be held and treated like a baby.  He often hides during the day in cabinets and closets and comes out when the coast is clear.  He spends his evenings with our other resident cat, Pong, with whom he has a close attachment.  His housekeeping abilities are nothing to brag about, but he is good-natured enough to allow the staff to use him when instructing clients about cat care.

Flipper is a resident cat at Compassion Veterinary Clinic and personal assistant to Meghan Aucoin.
