Barb is highly noted for her outstanding feline handling skills, precise attention to detail, and excellent time management. She is certainly one of the top 'go to' people for anything cat related.

Kerri Smith


Kerri started her career with Carnegie Cat Clinic in January 2005 as a Veterinary Technician. Kerri is a compassionate technician, an avid cat lover and an incredible asset to our practice. She brings a wealth of experience caring for our feline friends and pet parents. Her kind and gentle nature enables her to befriend just about every cat in our clinic, including some of our rather nervous patients and boarders. During their stay, boarding and hospitalized cats will enjoy lots of love, kisses and pets from Kerri.  Kerri is an incredible photographer and she's quite modest about it.  If you have been to our cat clinic, you will have surely seen the beautiful photography Kerri has created of our very own patients; some may even be your cats! You can see her work displayed around the Carnegie Cat Clinic lobby. Make sure to take a look next time you are here!

Hospital Cat Extraordinaire 

Meet Pasta!  AKA, Pasta Pants, Pasta Sauce, Royal Queen. Pasta is technically the owner's daughters' cat and has become our clinic cat. Pasta loves her little home in the corner of our cat clinic treatment area where her and Barb are best buds.  Pasta can often be seen sitting regally on the treatment table ready to greet our early morning team members. She drinks from a mug and is truly the light and love of our team. Our days just wouldn't be the same without Pasta. Thanks for all the love Pasta. You truly bring some royalty to our team.

Alexander Hamilton 


Clinic Cat Cutie 

Meet Alexander Hamilton, official resident of CCC!  Alex or AH, is a loveable guy who was found right outside our hospital when he was just about five months old.  Alex required a little extra love when we found him, as well as some reassurance that humans were his friends. After trying to find Alex a home, we came to realize that he had already found one! Our staff was smitten, and we couldn’t imagine our lives without him. He makes our workdays better with his calming purrs and affectionate headbutts. He is Facebook famous and spends his days hanging out in the Carnegie Cat Clinic with his best buddy Pasta!
