Georgie - MVS Greeter Cat

Georgie has had an interesting life including spending time as a barn cat. Her hunting eyes got a little too big one winter and she tried to take on a snow plow!

She has made the transition to an indoor cat like it was her idea...
Since adopting us, Georgie enjoys sitting on paper, playing with pens, and talking to clients.
