VUMC Pets of the Day: Tribble and Benson

Strategy and Innovation

Today’s Cat of the Day is Tribble, submitted by Wendy Williams of the Blood Bank. “Tribble is 6 years old and was part of a feral litter taken in by FLUFF Nashville in 2016. She’s never forgotten her feral roots and is still skittish and hesitant to give affection even after being in my home for six years. She’s not the brightest crayon in the tool shed, having only two brain cells that are devoted entirely to remembering when treat time is.”

Today’s Dog of the Day is Benson, submitted by Angela Wiggins of Strategy and Innovation. “Benson is a 5-year-old greyhound. He is a former racing dog and is serious about cuddling.”

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.

Tribble and Benson were featured in the Dec. 21 edition of MyVUMC.
