Your friendly neighborhood cat experts.

Dr. Tom Elston, DVM

Often called “the Cat Whisperer,” Dr. Elston is perfectly suited for his profession. In fact, cats have been his life’s work, and he was one of the first doctors in the country to specialize in cat-only Veterinary Medicine over 35 years ago. His calm demeanor will not only put your furry friends at ease, but as he takes you through what’s going on with them, you may find yourself wishing he were your physician too.

Our Practice Manager

Joni A.

Joni has been working in veterinary practice management for a while, and has been a pet person her entire life. Over the years, she’s had rabbits, fish, tortoises, birds, mice, hermit crabs, a dog, a wolf spider, a praying mantis… and even a cat or two. One of her favorite parts of working at THE Cat Hospital is being able to help clients find the right kind of products to help their cats live long, happy, and healthy lives. She also loves being able to get a daily dose of adorable kitties too.
