I have to admit---the reason I became a customer of Admiral Vet Hospital is because of the logo in their yellow pages ad---a cat with a pirate's hat and an eye patch.
I suppose that once I called them, I had even more reasons to be a customer. They were who I used when I had to get my cat shaved. They were humane and compassionate and had the lowest rates in town to do the job.
PLUS they did a super job of shaving my kitty, even leaving her a little poof on her tail so that she looked like a poodle!
