Heather Kennedy
Since 1999, Dr. Heather Kennedy has been involved in cat rescue as a shelter volunteer and as the cat care manager at the emergent shelter that Alley Cat Allies set up after Hurricane Katrina. She also loves feral cats and has TNRd over a thousand of them. After a first career in retail management, she decided to turn her cat rescue hobby into a career as a felineonly practitioner, graduating in 2013 from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis. Heather has worked at two very busy felineonly practices and is now at FieldHaven Feline Center, a felineonly shelter in Lincoln, California. She has had the good fortune to have seen thousands of cats in five years of practice. Her hobbies include helping people find their lost cats, staying current on feline medicine literature, and watching Netflix with her cats. She is currently working toward the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners feline practice board certification.
