How long have you worked at the Chicago Cat Clinic?

1 year

What made you want to work with Cats?

I found an orphan kitten about ten years ago and she changed my heart! Her name is “Ghostie” and she still resides with my parents. She was about 1 month old and very sick with URI & Ringworm – nursing her back to health and watching her thrive turned me into a certified “Cat Lady”

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

I love that it’s a calm and quiet environment, and that we all work together with a great understanding and appreciation of feline behavior.

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

When I first started working with cats, I was so surprised by the range of personalities they possess! They really are like furry little people!

Do you have pets at home?

Yes, four black cats: Nina 20 y/o & BBC 18 y/o adopted in 2010; Spartacat 13 y/o adopted in 2012; Wobbles 2 y/o adopted in 2016.

What do you like to do for fun?

I like to draw funny pictures, dig for treasure at the beach, make up songs about cats and sing them to my cats.
