When my mom was looking to adopt Caymus and Murphy, I came across Dr. J’s Perfect Dolls
near Chicago, IL. Jenn at the time had a seal mitted with a blaze Ragdoll kitten – which if you know me, is my favorite color pattern. So she and I were talking through e-mail and I became quite fond of her. I thought it was so neat that she was a vet. I thought the advantages of adopting from a vet were huge. Unfortunately, though, the timing didn’t work out – and we found Caymus and Murphy instead! Nonetheless, I have always followed Jenn’s website.
Since I get a lot of cat health care questions about Ragdoll cat behavior and other health concerns, I thought it would be perfect if Jenn could help answer some of our concerns!
When I asked her if she’d be up for it, she didn’t hesitate to offer a hand.
Here’s why Jenn is qualified to answer these concerns:
BA in Biology from Benedictine University
Assoc in business
BA in Veterinary Science
Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine
She’s been a practicing small animal veterinarian for 17 years and a emergency veterinarian for 11 years. She has also been breeding Ragdolls as a hobby for 15 years. Her cats have been featured in both a veterinary textbook and a children’s book about Ragdoll cats.
She is a member of the AVMA , CVMA ,TICA and RBFW. She lives with her husband, 4 children, 2 horses, 2 dogs, 2 tortoises and her beautiful cats on a hobby farm in Illinois.
So, now all she needs are questions that you have to answer! So if you have a health concern about your kitty or if your kitty is doing something strange – please send your question to Jenn through our contact page.
