Dr. Jenny AultDr. Jenny Ault, Veterinarian, with her cat Chester

I grew up in northwest Indiana near Chicago but have always wanted to be in the Rockies. That opportunity came in 2013 when I took over ownership of Cats on Broadway. Before purchasing Cats and moving to Missoula, I worked in Indiana treating dogs, cats, and exotics. I have always enjoyed working with cats, but it was not until I started working with them exclusively that I came to understand how truly special and unique they really are. Every day they teach me something new. In my personal life, I am happily married and have 2 small boys. My animal family consists of 2 cats named Bounce and Chester and a tortoise named Taco. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, hiking, and biking.

Dr. Jenny earned her Bachelor’s degree in Science (Biology) from Purdue University in 1997 and her Master’s degree in Science (Biology) from Purdue University in 1999. She obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from St. George’s University in 2004.

Dr. Jenny continues the care and compassion that her predecessors started over 20 years ago and is dedicated to continually improving the level of care given at Cats. Her medical interests include preventative medicine, alternative therapies, and wound care. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and the Montana Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA). She is working on obtaining her Board Certification in Feline Medicine.

Chester is 11 years old. He was given up by his original owner at 3 years old due to uncontrollable urine, stool, and vomiting issues. Once his diet was corrected and his anxiety issues were resolved, he improved dramatically. Chester is now a healthy, happy cat that loves to run around the house, sneak outside when he can, and lounge in open windows.

Katrina moved to Missoula in 2014. She attended Missoula College and graduated with an Associate in Arts degree in 2015. Katrina happily states: “I have loved cats my entire life, and I want to work as a feline behaviorist. I know Cats on Broadway is the perfect place for me to learn all about cats hands-on.” Katrina started working at Cats on Broadway in 2015. Outside of work Katrina loves to sing karaoke; she started at age 12 and says that she will never stop.

Sylvester is 10 years old. Just before finding his permanent home with Katrina, he was attacked by a dog that severely fractured his jaw. Due to this injury, he has a permanently crooked jaw and sticks his tongue out. Sylvester loves to be brushed and has a special fondness for an old back scratcher.

Outside of work Ashley enjoys performing Ballet, Jazz, and Modern dance, listening to music, watching movies, binge watching her favorite TV shows, cooking, and art. “I love working at Cats because of the fun environment and being able to help all our feline patients.”

Merlin is 5 years old. He enjoys spending most days sleeping, adventuring around the house, and lazing about on the couch or in the windows.

Shelby is a native of Montana, and she has always enjoyed animals. As a child, Shelby encouraged her mother to get more and more pets for their household, practically creating their own “zoo” to enjoy. Nowadays, she is studying to become a certified veterinary technician. In her spare time, Shelby enjoys many outdoor activities, including camping, hiking, hunting and fishing.

Tiffany is technically her mother’s cat, but Shelby will have her own cat one day soon!

Buster, Resident Cat
Buster, Resident Cat
My name is Buster. This is my hospital, though I am polite enough to allow the humans to think they run the place. I spend most of my days staring out the windows at my kingdom. The humans often take my expression of boredom for anger. It is my job to welcome the other cats that visit my hospital and tolerate the attention of my humans. If you would like to come visit, I would be happy to see you!

Percy, Honorary Resident Cat
Percy, Honorary Resident Cat
Percy was our foster clinic cat and was officially adopted by Katrina! He had a rough start in life and was found in 2015 on a remote hiking trail near St. Ignatius. He was in poor shape, and at first look, he appeared to be a geriatric female cat. Once all his mats were removed and he was examined, we discovered he was a young male. Other than being FIV positive* and very thin, he was in decent shape. Since then, Percy has gained 2 pounds and has found his personality! He loves kids and chasing treats, and he gets along well with other cats. Along the way, we have also discovered a couple of his other quirks: He has very poor eyesight due to (possible) nutritional deficiency as a kitten or a congenital condition. We’re so happy that Percy has found his forever home!
