Mandy enjoys preventative medicine and the benefits that good veterinary care has for both cats and clients. Mandy attained her Membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in Feline Medicine 2 years ago.
Mandy and her husband share their home with 3 cats, 2 dogs and 1 lorikeet. Soon they will be inviting 2 chickens to stay once they finish building the chicken coupe.
Her 3 demanding cats, Cricket, Earwig and Beetle, have also settled in very well but then they are used to moving internationally, having been to Melbourne before. Petra has since added to her brood, adopting a cute little Devon Rex called ‘Mozzie.’ Petra is interested in all aspects of feline medicine but enjoys most getting to know her patients and their owners and looking after them through their different life stages. She especially enjoys caring for those important family members, the older cats.

Alison and her husband share their home with their two small children, a number of kitties who have been adopted from the clinic, including Moses, Delilah, Jonah and Samson, as well as 3 chickens and an assortment of tropical fish.
Mandy is responsible for looking after her husband, son, two stepsons, two Labradors, two cats, two horses and chooks on a property at Sheldon.
Siti Abdul Khalid
For the first few years, Siti did all the afterhours emergencies and looked after the hospitalised cats while everyone else went home. She can’t remember the last time she has touched any other animal species and thinks herself lucky to only ever have worked at The Cat Clinic.
Apart from her great love of cats, Siti enjoys reading and swimming and along with her sister, shares a home with three lovely cats, Kikyo, Sayang and Sulaiman.
Susan graduated from Veterinary Science at The University of Sydney in 2007. She then moved home to Brisbane and has been working at The Cat Clinic ever since.
Susan has two lovely cats - Dim Sim and Sahara. When not at work, Susan spends her time organising vegan bake sales, doing yoga and watching TV (with her cat). Susan completed her Memberships in Feline Medicine with the ANZCVS in 2012, and is currently completing a PhD through UQ looking at diabetic cats in remission.
Luciano has 3 cats that he misses very much, as they are back home in Peru but enjoys spending time with his two kitties at home with him here in Australia.
He started spending time at The Cat Clinic in 2013 and realised he much preferred cats over any other animals. He is very excited to be working with cats only and he wishes to learn as much as he can about them, hoping to further his career in the field. In his free time, he enjoys watching football matches and listening to music.
Despite having dogs all of her life, Susan has a stronger affinity towards cats and is excited to be working with only feline patients. She is especially interested in internal medicine and oncology. When not working, Susan is servant to her King of the House cat, Mi-bao (meaning baby cat in Mandarin).
He especially enjoys orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery. Outside of work Nick spends his free time playing soccer, skateboarding and playing the drums.
With a special interest in ultrasonography and endoscopy, Marcus is usually found diagnosing and treating our really sick cats. He became a Registered Specialist in Feline Medicine in 2009, but by far Marcus’s best life achievement are his 2 beautiful daughters, Georgia and Anna whom you may often see down visiting their dad and keeping an eye on all the kittens.
Away from work, Marcus thoroughly enjoys spending time outdoors, and has become an avid runner. For several years now he has had a keen interest in distance running and trail running, even having competed in numerous triathlons. Marcus and his family share their home with 2 Burmese cats, a beautiful little brown Burmese lady named ‘Rosie’, and a handsome yet very cheeky red Burmese boy named ‘Mango’. There are also a number of chickens and a happy little Border Collie called ‘Oreo’ who has become a great running partner for her Dad.
Vic became a registered Veterinary Specialist in Feline Medicine in 1982 and established the only Feline Renal Transplant unit in Australia which has been operational for over 10 years. His special interest remains in diseases of feline kidneys. His achievements are simply too great to list, but probably the best thing Vic ever did was recognise that cats were different to dogs and that they should treated differently to dogs.
Vic currently spends much of his time teaching veterinarians, supervising grandchildren, inspecting golf courses and sampling fine wines. Vic with his wife Helen and their children have been privileged to have been owned by and loved families of Burmese over the many years including a beautiful red Burmese named Hope, who was a very special little lady.
Rhett has recently completed a PhD in Feline Diabetes and has been credited with changing the treatment outcomes for cats with diabetes. He has authored many publications and presented his research findings overseas.
Rhett’s real passion though is for surgery and he spends lots of his time with surgical cases. In 2003 he passed membership examinations of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Surgery.
When Rhett isn't saving the lives of our feline friends, he loves nothing more than spending all of his free time with his wife Esther and his 3 kids. He enjoys riding motorbikes and kicking the football around with his 2 young boys Ethan and Felix. He is also enjoying teaching them to be great 'big brothers' to their beautiful little sister Josette, who is already surprising Dad with her intelligence! He has 2 cats, Mickey Mouse and Phoebe, and the newest addition to the Marshall clan is an adorable little 'groodle' pup named 'Gracie.' Gracie is a very spoilt member of the family who gets regular haircuts to maintain her cute little nickname - 'Pom-Pom Head!'
