History

Primary Canon

During a job interview with the Conductors of the Metaphysical Examination at the headquarters, Kevin asked it was okay to bring Mike Hat to work sometimes because he had major anxiety problems.[4] Abby Yates misheard Kevin's words as "my cat" and revealed she had pretty severe cat allergy. Kevin corrected her and said he was a dog. Abby asked if the dog's name was My Cat. Kevin said it was Mike Hat. Erin Gilbert realized his first name was "Mike" and his last name was "Hat." Kevin added his full name was Michael Hat. Abby admitted she wasn't allergic to dogs. Kevin replied it was all right because Mike lived with his mother.[5]

In order to combat his extreme ADHD, Kevin was paired with Mike Hat, a service dog trained to keep him on task.[6] Some time after the Mercado Hotel incident, Mike Hat started residing in the Firehouse. With Kevin not feeling the need to answer the ringing phone, Mike Hat grabbed it in his mouth and walked over to Erin. Erin thanked Mike then spoke to a rather rude person.
