VUMC Pets of the Day: Ruby and Lizzy Lou

Mattie Goostree

Today’s Cat of the Day is Ruby, submitted by Mattie Goostree of Pediatrics. “Ruby is a 7-year-old bobtail cat who likes to sit on your shoulder during a Zoom meeting!”

Today’s Dog of the Day is Lizzy Lou, submitted by Andrea Glover of Quality, Safety, & Risk Prevention at Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital. “Lizzy Lou is an 8-month-old red tick coon hound mix. She loves giving hugs and kisses, belly rubs, doggie ice cream, car rides, watching baseball (Go Vandy Boys!), and being outside.”

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 later this year, and will be announced in MyVUMC.

Ruby and Lizzy Lou were featured in the Feb. 22, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
