Geri and her husband walked in to the Cat Clinic a few months after it opened, and it wasn't long before she became an employee. That was back in 1983! There probably isn't a cat owner that doesn't know Geri and appreciate all of the care and concern she gives the Cat Clinic and all of the patients and their human owners. Geri and her husband currently live with an indoo, 'neurotic' cat, Coco, and an outdoor cat that has adopted them, Chewy. All of them are entertained by their red ear slider turtle, Bertha.
