In 2015 when Diane was getting ready to sell her urban feline practice after 33 years of feline practice ownership, her Velvet was diagnosed with chronic and replasing pancreatitis and kidney failure. Diane provided Velvet with hospice care in her home and was able to keep Velvet comfortable for almost a year. After Velvet's passing, Diane decided she needed to give the gift of hospice care and home euthansia to other cat owners so decided to launch an end of life practice at the Jersey Shore just for cats who live in Ocean County.
Diane enrolled in the first hospice and palliative care certification course offered by the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care and in the fall of 2017 passed her certification exam. It warms her heart that she can now offer in home comfort care and in home compassionate euthanasia for needy cats.
