Nursing team


Melissa Mathieson

mel2_000Melissa started at The Cat Clinic just after it opened in 2005. She absolutely loves cats and shares her life with two rescue cats, ‘Isobelle’ and ‘Dimity’, as well as her husband, Damien.

Melissa also does an amazing job helping foster homeless cats and kittens until they can find new owners.

Melissa has a keen interest in feline behaviour and has a first class honours degree in animal behaviour. As a result Melissa works hard to ensure she had a special bond with each and every cat she comes across.

Melissa attained her Certificate IV in veterinary nursing this year after 3 years of very hard and dedicated study. Melissa is the longest serving staff member – other than Richard of course – congratulations Melissa.
