Dr. Cathy Lund
Dr. Cathy Lund shares her home with her husband, Dr. Peter Karczmar (who is also a confirmed cat lover!), and their three cats: Simon, Miguel and Leroy. She has been a Providence resident since 1988 and is a 1986 graduate of Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Lund completed an internship at The Cat Practice, in New York City, where she realized that being a cat-specialized veterinarian was “purr-fect” for her. City Kitty is the end result of many years of planning and anticipation. It is her sincere hope that you are as delighted with the clinic and its services as she is.
Dr. Sarah Mercurio
Dr. Sarah Mercurio is a feline-fanatic! She has been at City Kitty since 2009. Prior to joining City Kitty she worked at a feline practice in the Los Angeles area. She received her DVM degree from the University of Minnesota, and always knew that she wanted to work exclusively with cats (and their staff). When she’s not at City Kitty, Dr. Mercurio loves spending time with her husband and 2 daughters, their 2 cats; William and Thomas, 22 chickens and 6 bee hives. Dr. Mercurio’s favorite part about cats is their long toe fur!
