“My favorite part about my job as a feline veterinarian is the minute an owner walks through the door with his/her cat, we have an automatic connection. We appreciate cats for what they are– the mysterious kind of love they offer, the regal stance they flaunt, and the grace with little effort they master.”- Jasmine C. Champagne, DVM
