Judo, a patient at Crenshaw Animal Clinic, is an integral part of the Norsworthy family. She enjoys chasing her human sisters around the house, often being found at their heels as they run through the house in fits of giggles. Her second favorite pastime is playing fetch.

Norsworthy describes Judo as a very curious and loving pet with a voracious appetite.

“When Judo isn’t playing, she loves to cuddle up in our laps or on the back of the couch — her favorite spot,” said Norsworthy.

Judo’s energetic personality makes her an attentive family guardian. She has a keen sense of awareness and often vocalizes her observations, ensuring her family is always informed, even about trivial occurrences like a falling leaf outside the window.
