Meet Our Staff – Cynthia Townsend May 2017

How long have you worked at the Chicago Cat Clinic?

Since May 2016

What made you want to work with Cats?

I love cats! I’ve been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. I grew up with cats & dogs. I have a particular fondness for the independent nature of cats.

What do you love most about working at a Cat Only clinic?

Interacting with the cats >^o^<

What is the one thing you have learned about Cats that surprises you?

I was surprised to learn that a cat’s “Silent Meow” is in fact a very high pitched meow that only other felines can hear. This means cats have a higher hearing range which helps them to hunt and be aware of predators.

Do you have pets at home?

Yes, my two boys. The Baby (7 years old) and Arthur (4 years old).

What do you like to do for fun?

Love to read, watch movies, volunteer, explore the city, hang with my two boys.
