Welcome to The Cat Clinic, the only feline exclusive veterinary clinic in Hawaii. We strive to keep your cat healthy and comfortable in every way possible. Vet visits can be stressful enough for our furry feline friends and we know that barking dogs do not help.  Here, we can offer a quiet, clean, and caring place to come to for your cat's healthcare needs.





We are the only animal hospital providing feline exclusive medicine 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 former 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 like to keep our feline patients fit and healthy and encourage Annual Examinations for adult cats.  Vaccinations are recommended and performed only to your cats needs and the veterinarian will always take your cats medical history into consideration.
Vaccinations are recommended every three years after the initial kitten shot cycle is finished.  Our vaccination protocol has been formatted to ensure your cat is protected with minimal risks.

We offer great boarding services for our feline patients. There are many benefits to boarding your cat in a veterinary clinic. We are able to monitor your cat's appetite, urine output and bowel movements very closely. 
Microchips are the easiest and best way to identify your cat should they ever get lost.  We encourage all pets be microchipped and we are able to help implant the microchips here.
The Cat Clinic is a participant in the Hawaiian Humane Neuter Now Program. We are currently accepting these certificates for current clients and "going to be" clients. 
Dental care is an important part of your cat's overall well being. The veterinarians at The Cat Clinic perform oral exams at every wellness visit and monitor any changes to the patients teeth.  Dental cleanings and extractions are done under a general anesthetic so we take great care in monitoring your cat while the procedures are performed.
