Ganesh is not just a cat, but already a doctor, and in a couple of months he will be a senior anesthesiologist. He may be considered as being mostly theoretical, but at the same time he is sensitive and romantic, even philosophical. He is also clever and he strikes without warning.
Doctor Ganesh Furtado (Ganesh to his friends) is a 10-year-old European male cat. His fur is black with symmetrical white spots in the abdomen and neck. His eyes are green and he weighs 7 kg.
Doctor Ganesh had been abandoned on the street, he was probably just around 4 months old when I took him home with me. At the time, I was a third-year medical student, and in my company Ganesh quickly took up the challenge of becoming a doctor.
