About Cats Only Veterinary Hospital

Welcome to Cats Only Veterinary Hospital, a sanctuary of specialized veterinary care dedicated solely to cats’ wellbeing. Our story begins with Dr. Carolyn Wooley, a visionary veterinarian who set out to transform feline care after earning her doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania over 40 years ago.

The Genesis of Cats Only

After years of practicing in a mixed animal environment, Dr. Wooley noticed how stressed cats became in the presence of dogs and other animals. This observation sparked the idea for Cats Only Veterinary Hospital, where cats could receive care in a tranquil, dog-free environment.

Established in Norristown, PA, Cats Only became a haven for felines, providing them with care tailored to their specific needs without the stress of interacting with natural predators like dogs. The calmness and comfort cats exhibit at Cats Only is a testament to Dr. Wooley’s innovative approach to veterinary care, emphasizing the physical and emotional well-being of feline patients​.

McSNIP: A Commitment to Feline Population Control

After the sale of the original Cats Only, Dr. Wooley founded McSNIP, the Mercer County Spay Neuter Incentive Program, addressing the urgent need for affordable spay and neuter services. McSNIP targets feral and shelter cats, significantly impacting the overpopulation crisis and improving the lives of countless felines in Mercer County and beyond. McSNIP’s approach is rooted in the understanding that early spaying and neutering helps to prevent unwanted litters and contribute to the health and longevity of feral cat colonies. The program embodies Dr. Wooley’s dedication to feline welfare, showcasing a proactive approach to veterinary care and community service.
