VUMC Pets of the Day: Lucy and Nugget

Today’s Cat of the Day is Lucy, submitted by Curtis Gabriel of Gastroenterology. “Lucy is a Siamese Cat mix. She still hasn’t figured out how to take a flattering selfie.”

Today’s Dog of the Day is Nugget, submitted by Mary-Whitten Waters of Internal Medicine. “I like sticks, belly rubs, counter surfing, and mom has been begging her boss to let me come to work as the Internal Medicine Mascot. Mom has decorated the nurses station with my pictures.”

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.

Lucy and Nugget were featured in the April 23, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
