Dr. Katarina Luther

Medical Director, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

Dr. Katarina Luther has considered the Madison area home since experiencing it as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin. She worked with Nestle Purina within their feline pet food division before obtaining her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at UW-School of Veterinary Medicine.

Since graduation, Dr. Luther has practiced exclusively in small animal, emergency hospitals, and specialty clinics in the Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago areas. She became involved with Cat Care Clinic many years ago and over time, assumed ownership of the clinic. In 2018, Dr. Luther opened Cat Care Clinic’s second location in downtown Madison and in 2019, To Your Door mobile veterinary care was added to the organization. Today, the team is proud to provide a wide variety of veterinary medical services for cats in Milwaukee as well.

Dr. Luther loves interacting daily with long-standing Cat Care Clinic clients and friends, and welcoming new patients into the Cat Care family. She enjoys being actively involved with community organizations and local animal shelters. “I enjoy mentoring staff and visiting students and helping them reach their goals as many of my own mentors have helped me throughout my career. We have veterinarians and students from all over the country come to spend time in our clinic, due to its long-standing reputation for exceptional veterinary care and management,” she says.

Dr. Luther founded and is also active with Guardian Whiskers Inc, a non-profit organization that develops community wellness and literacy programs to help people, particularly children, by utilizing the human-animal bond experience. “Thanks to our collaboration with local rescues, other veterinary hospitals, vendors, and local business organizations, we have a great network to use for making a difference in our community, uniting people with the proven health benefits of pets.”

What does Dr. Luther love about Cat Care Clinic? “I never have a doubt that every CCC team member is looking out for the very best interest of each patient, as well as each client. We have a truly special caring, skilled team. With longer appointments and a focus on the whole picture of each cat’s health and home environment, we really get to know our clients.”

Dr. Wendy Sherer

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

Dr. Wendy Sherer entered veterinary school with aspirations of specializing in emergency medicine or equine care. However, the trajectory of our interests often diverges from our initial plans. She found herself drawn to the field of geriatric feline medicine, developing a profound affection for elderly, ill-tempered cats. Working with these old, bony felines became her passion, revealing a fondness for what she affectionately refers to as the old geezers and biddies.

In addition to her love for nurturing grumpy cats, she harbors a deep-seated passion for travel. Exploring new cultures, sampling unfamiliar cuisines, and embracing the diversity of the world excites her. In February, she and her husband embarked on a three-week adventure to Kenya, an experience she describes as nothing short of extraordinary. The opportunity to observe lions, elephants, giraffes, and cheetahs in their natural habitat was profoundly affecting. Although their next destination remains undecided, the anticipation of another journey fills her with excitement.

Recently, she decided to install a bird feeder to entertain her cats, a decision that swiftly escalated. Now the owner of five bird feeders, she has also acquired a bird identification book, begun crafting her own suet, and invested significantly in birdseed. She insists, humorously, that all these efforts are solely for the enjoyment of her cats.

Her household includes three unique cats: Seymour Toes, a 16-year-old polydactyl long-haired orange male; Marvie, a 10-year-old three-legged tuxedo and a formerly feral cat still shy around his own shadow; and Stevie, a 7-year-old Sphynx. Seymour and Marvie were both orphaned kittens she took under her care. Stevie, known for her spicy demeanor, was adopted from the Denver Animal Shelter after being surrendered due to aggression. Despite her challenging behavior, Stevie simply required an understanding family willing to respect her space, which she found in her new home. Dr. Shere says, “three doesn't seem like enough cats, but the ones who need me always find me.”

Dr. Dolores Shine

Dr. Dolores Shine received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Illinois in 1989 after receiving her Bachelor of Science in Biology degree from Marquette University. She practiced small animal medicine in Illinois for nine years before returning to Wisconsin in 1998. Dr. Shine has a special love for our kitty companions and especially enjoys preventative care and feline geriatric medicine.

In her spare time, Dr. Shine and her husband enjoy spending time with their six children and four grandchildren. They also are avid boaters and love to enjoy the beautiful Great Lakes.
