She is married to Dr. Daryl Hanley and they have two children. 

Cita: Public Relations Officer

Cita is our Clinic Cat, and lives at Southside full time. She was dropped off at our other clinic, Lloydminster Animal Hospital one fall night back in 2013.  Her full name is Mama-Cita, as she had a litter of kittens along with her.  We took her and her kittens in and made sure that they were healthy. Once the kittens were old enough they were adopted out and Cita moved down to our clinic, and she’s been entertaining us ever since!   

Cita has numerous full time roles around the clinic. She is our go-to when it comes to demonstrating anything from injections to pills...Cita has seen it all around here! In the mornings she helps the doctors check in patients. Any fellow cat that may be in distress, Cita lets them know she is there for them by signaling under the exam room doors with her paws.  Cita is also great with our clients, especially the littlest ones. Having a dance studio upstairs, we see a lot of little boys and girls with their faces pressed against the front door. She has become quite the attraction, and has many visitors come give her lots of love and attention. She quite enjoys her belly rubs and loves to chase toys all over the clinic. We often find her curled up by the fireplace, holding down the box of coloring books.
