Stevie Moral Support Wizard
The startup life can be tough. Stevie was recruited from underneath a car on the east side of Austin on a rainy day. At his job interview, Stevie proved that he had potential to provide adequate emotional and moral support and was immediately hired to be On Vinyl's house cat. Named after Austin legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, Stevie takes after Vaughan's rock 'n' roll edge and can be rambunctious, spastic, playful and loud especially when he is looking for his bowl to be refilled.
