VUMC Pets of the Day: Wrigley and Tiger

Today’s Dog of the Day is Wrigley, submitted by Nancy Wickersham of Allergy, Pulmonary, Critical Care Medicine.

Today’s Cat of the Day is Tiger, submitted by Suryakala SarillaBennett of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology. “Tiger is a 2 year old long hair, orange and white male cat. He adopted me instead of me adopting him, because he was left by his previous owner. Back then, I already had Rocky, a 16 year old cat, who became Cat of the Year in Vanderbilt House Organ magazine in 2009. At the age of 17 Rocky passed away in September, 2021. During the time of Rocky, Tiger used to come to my porch thinking he would get some food and I stared feeding him. One day I decided to get him neutered and he became my cat.”

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.

Wrigley and Tiger were featured in the April 2, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
