Meet Bari-Cat-Trics, Our Utica Office Cat!

Our New Cat Bari-Cat-Trics

The staff at Dr. Graber’s office always works hard to provide our patients with a friendly and comfortable environment. But, at our office, there is one staff member in particular who helps brighten the mood… Bari-Cat-Trics, our office cat. Bari-Cat-Trics supports our staff as they work hard throughout the day to help our patients!

Although Dr. Graber has been doing bariatric surgery since 2002, Bari-Cat-Trics didn’t join us until 2010, when we rescued him from the parking lot next door. Some of our staff members noticed that he was born with four siblings, but his mother carried them all away. For some reason, she left Bari behind. That’s when our staff swooped in to rescue him from life as a homeless street cat. We set up a “Have a Heart” trap and brought him into our practice. He took to life as a spoiled office cat pretty quickly and is still living a life of luxury four years later!

As anyone who has visited our Utica office has probably noticed, most of our staff members are female–in fact, about 87% of us are women. But don’t think that Bari-Cat-Trics hasn’t won over Dr. Graber and the men on staff, because he certainly has. While the receptionists, clerks, certified bariatric surgery nurses, and other staff members stay busy all day long, Bari-Cat-Trics serves as a friendly face and reminder to slow down and appreciate the joy of having a furry friend to keep us company. Next time you’re in our Utica office, you can take comfort in knowing that Bari is cheering for you
