I am originally from Hamilton, Ohio, a city a little north of Cincinnati. I lived there until I left for KSU after I graduated high school. I decided to go to KSU because I wanted to become a fashion designer. I had the ideas but not the time and technical skills for fashion design. After over 2 years, I dropped out with no goal in mind. Years went by and I didn't really think about college. I received something in the mail about a vet assistant program and something clicked in my head. My entire life I had animals around me. When I was younger, I wanted to be a vet but never thought I could handle blood and animal organs. Working with animals seemed so obvious after I thought about it. My cats were my life. I had an incident with my cat that did not end well. That made me want to know more about cats to prevent such an occurrence with my other cats. I graduated with honors from the vet assistant program but was hungry for more knowledge. One of my classmates told me about a vet tech program so I went to check it out. Now years later, I am finally graduated. I passed the state exam and am on my way to becoming licensed.
I have been working in an animal shelter since 2006. Since that time I have been feline focused. I became the feline manager, feline foster manager, a feline foster parent of hundreds of kittens, and most recently stepped into a role using my degree as a vet tech. I now have some basic knowledge with dogs, ferrets, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs My real loved still are felines.
I hope to share my experience and knowledge with you all so that you can become well versed in cat care and behavior.
