Mobile Vet Care – The Best of Both Worlds

One of the people who helped me bring Club Cat to life is Kelly Doria, DVM, owner of All Paws House Calls, a mobile vet care that services Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. I’ve known Dr. Doria (Kelly as I call her) since I was a teenager, when her sister became one...

Just You and Me, Cat

Bobcat’s napping on the bed and I can hear his soft snoring coming from the bedroom.  I’ve got KXFM, Laguna’s radio station playing Americana music in the kitchen, but it still seems too quiet; too still.  Not that I like loudness or lots of activity around me while...

The heroes behind so many of Orange County’s adopted cats (and dogs!)

When we think about animal shelters, so many of us focus on the final (and most exciting) step: pet adoption. I know I did. Until earlier this year, when I listened to Terry Gross's interview with Hannah Shaw, aka The 'Kitten Lady' on NPR. Wow, was that interview...

Happy Birthday to OC’s first cat café, Catmosphere Laguna!

One summer day in 2018, on a whim, I took my daughters to Laguna Beach for the afternoon. We parked on Forest Ave and began our walk to the sand. My then 8-year old was super excited to dive into the waves. My teenager was ready to dive into her phone.  And I was...

Newport Pet Clinic – setting the gold standard in OC pet care
