Dr. Geri Katz

Dr. Geri Katz is a 1996 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. She has practiced as a small animal veterinarian for over fifteen years, but has a particular fondness for felines. “Cats are such a unique species. They have complex social dynamics and an evolutionary physiology which makes them very different from being smaller versions of any other species. They are brave and subtle and can be very puzzling at times.” Dr. Katz feels that a significant number of feline medical illnesses can be explained by nutritional imbalances and uses a natural approach whenever possible.

As an active member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and regional veterinary associations, Dr. Katz is continually learning from veterinary specialists regarding various health issues that affect cats. “What fulfills me most as a veterinarian,” Dr Katz says, “is building trusting relationships with pet owners, and ensuring that my patients live long, healthy, and comfortable lives.”

In Dr. Katz’s free time she enjoys spending quality time with her husband and two children in Fairfield, Connecticut. She also loves to spoil her kitties – Jimmy, Meep, and Jeorge.


Emilee Bernstein

Emilee is our wonderful client care coordinator. She will always greet you and your kitties with a smile and make sure you are taken care of from the initial phone call and throughout your experience here.  Emilee always has a bright and cheery outlook and thoroughly enjoys getting to know our pet parents and their kitties! Having studied veterinary science at the University of Connecticut, Emilee has been in the veterinary field for the past 20 years.  She has worked for multiple small animal hospitals throughout Fairfield and New Haven counties in various capacities from veterinary assisting to administrative and managerial duties. Though she is adept at caring for and handling both cats and dogs, Emilee is a true cat lover at heart and always hoped her career would lead her to focusing primarily on cats. In her spare time, Emilee enjoys spending time with family and friends. She is the proud mom to her four cats – Lena, Miranda,Brenda, and Mr. Butters!

Ally Castro

Ally is one of our Vet Technicians. She graduated from Norwalk Community College’s veterinary technician program in the class of 2022 and will be getting licensed this summer.

She previously worked at a mixed practice having experience with dogs, pocket pets and cats. After her first two years in the field she fell in love with cats and unexpectedly became a cat person! Ally hopes to continue her education in feline behavior and dentistry.

A dedicated advocate for Mental Health, Ally works with a non profit organization to help end the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide prevention. We look forward to learning from her about the therapeutic ways cats can help people, too!

We love the positive energy Ally brings to the office! She is friendly and spunky with a can-do attitude. A huge help to Dr. Katz, we are delighted she has joined our team. We know you’ll love her, too!
