Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Kathy

    Dr. Kathy grew up in Fredericksburg, received a B.S. at Duke and her DVM at Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. Pete (pictured) was a few days old when a Good Samaritan brought him to Just Cats and Kathy took him home. He later suffered from urinary tract issues and underwent perineal urethrostomy surgery. He is her special needs buddy and Kathy is convinced that he would trade her for a rotisserie chicken. She has two grown children, a son in human medicine and a daughter in consulting. Kathy spends a large part of her free time sailing.

  • Laura

    Laura is our busiest bee here at Just Cats, juggling a career as a personal trainer as well. She is important in every aspect of our hospital, participating in patient care and management. Laura’s cat Mehmeh had four kittens in her woodpile in 2012, and Laura found homes for the kittens and kept Mehmeh as her own. Laura’s son is in the Marine Corps and her daughter is in graduate school for Physical Therapy. In her spare time, she paddle boards, snowboards, runs, and bikes.
