We are the only animal hospital providing feline specific practice in Hawaii. Founded by Dr Suzanne Sylvester-Palumbo and Dr Nicholas Palumbo in October of 1988, The Cat Clinic has a long history of caring for your feline family. We provide the special attention and personal service you’ll come to expect and enjoy.
At The Cat Clinic we know that sometimes just getting your cat into the carrier can be a major ordeal. The last thing you want after the car ride is to walk into an office waiting room and place your carrier beside an unfamiliar dog. Come into The Cat Clinic and have a restful seat. Our skilled staff will guide you though the appointment, and even do the holding while the doctor examines your cat.
The Cat Clinic will always remember the important contribution Nicholas and Timmy Palumbo made to the clinic and our lives. Dr Nicholas Palumbo was well practiced at surgery, and saved many feline lives. Spike our blood donor kitty is a small example of his resourceful skill. Spike would have lost his leg if Dr Palumbo had not transposed the pad of the foot to the end of his fractured leg to give Spike a pad to walk on and maintain use of the limb. Timmy was our ray of sunshine. He knew how to appreciate the small things, and kept us grounded to what is important in life. Nicholas and Timmy will be dearly missed, and lovingly remembered.
We offer great boarding services, too!!!
The Cat Clinic has an entire floor dedicated to boarding cats. There are multiple cages that offer larger living spaces when available to open into double cages. We have many patients that are also frequent boarders and settle in quite easily. Ask to see our boarding facilities any time during normal business hours. Our friendly staff will be more than happy to give you a tour.
There is a fantastic view of Diamond Head from the cats' boarding window. There are multiple windows available for their cat viewing pleasure. Our boarding feline guests are allowed time out of their cages twice day while we are doing feedings and cleanings. We do not allow mulitple cats out at the same time to ensure the safety of all animals. We do allow cats from the same household to play together should you request this during their stay.
We encourage all cats planning to board to bring the foods they typically eat at home. We do, however, carry veterinary diets Hills Science Diet and Royal Canin should your cat need to continue a prescription diet during their stay. The cat's eating habits, urination and bowel movements are also monitored closely to avoid any additional problems during their stay.
