VUMC Pets of the Day: Arthur and Max

Ann Benco

Today’s Cat of the Day is Arthur, submitted by Ann H. Benco of Nursing Education. “Arthur is an extreme flat-faced Persian cat. He is absolutely the sweetest cat I have ever had. I saw the advertisement for him and just couldn’t get him out of my mind. I looked at him 10 days later and couldn’t believe he was still available, and his cost had been reduced. He is 15 months old, and I have had him about 11 months. I love him!”

Today’s Dog of the Day is Max, submitted by Kathy Adams from the Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute. “He is my grand dog who is full of energy and is an Australian Shepherd, age 4.”

Pets of the Day — what you need to know

The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Pets of the Day are included in regular editions of the MyVUMC newsletter, which is posted twice a week by VUMC News and Communications.

The pets are selected from the hundreds of entries sent earlier this year to the VUMC Voice Pet Photo Contest.

For those who submitted a photo to that contest, watch MyVUMC for Pets of the Day, and in addition, regular collections of pet photos are posted to the VUMC Voice site. You can see them all here:

If you have a pet you would like to nominate for Pet of the Day, the next Pet Photo Contest submission period is coming up in 2024, and will be announced in MyVUMC.

Arthur and Max were featured in the Nov. 28, 2023 edition of MyVUMC.
