I-lean was brought in to Midvalley Animal Clinic in August of 2008 after being hit by a car. The trauma of the car accident caused temporary spinal damage that took away her ability to walk on her front legs. She was able to lean over hence the name I-lean. Dr. Milligan was determined to help this little stray kitty and worked her magic. Soon after, I-lean was successfully walking again! She has been running the clinic as our office mascot ever since! She is often seen staring off into the abyss while holding down the front desk. She enjoys sunbathing in the windows, perching on an unsuspecting client's shoulders, and playing hide and seek with her hairballs.
