VUMC Pets of the Day: Effie and Augustus

Today’s Cat of the Day is Effie, submitted by Jennifer Luther of Pediatric Infectious Diseases. “She is the princess of the house. She is very playful. Her favorite playmate is our Saint Bernard, Mozart.”

Today’s Dog of the Day is Augustus, aka Gus or Gussy, submitted by Kathryn Jett of the Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute. “He loves his banana pajamas, having his arm pits and belly scratched He also loves walks and his people.”

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.

Effie and Augustus were featured in the March 19, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
