Dr. Moses is originally from Atlanta. She attended Clemson University earning a bachelor of science degree in animal science. She has worked with horses, dairy cows, dairy goats, exotics, dogs and of course cats. After working abroad in New Zealand followed by a couple of years with Clemson Animal Hospital, waiting tables and running her own pet sitting service she saved enough pennies to attend the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation she spent almost a decade in the Akron, OH area where she worked for a very progressive 24/7 multi-doctor practice. This was a valuable experience as it afforded her the luxury of seeing many interesting and unusual cases as well as using all kinds of advanced equipment. Working exclusively with cats was always her dream and goal.
Dr. Moses moved to Charlotte in 2006 specifically to start a cat hospital. 13 months after arriving in the Queen city she opened the doors of 4 Seasons Cat Hospital. With no pre-existing clients and only a minimal familiarity with Charlotte she assumed all the risks associated with starting a new business to create a calm environment conducive to a cat’s well-being. By focusing on a single species Dr. Moses can invest all of her continuing education in feline medicine, surgery and behavior.
Dr. Moses is very involved in the American Association of Feline Practitioners and its mission to educate both fellow professionals and cat owning clients about feline health. As a student she received their award for excelling in feline medicine and surgery. She attends AAFP’s meetings every year and enjoys sharing ideas and cases with her fellow practitioners.
For over 20 years she showed and bred Maine Coon Cats and for a short while European Burmese. She has retired from breeding due to her growing responsibilities in 4 Seasons Cat Hospital but those years gave her unique insight into the management of multi-cat households. Two of her retired big boys, Marco and Chip, once acted as the official meet and greet committee for the hospital and shared a little blood with patients when needed but they have since passed. They are greatly missed by all who met them. The little chocolate EB you might catch a glimpse of is Windsor. His brother Wallace, the red EB, now lives at the hospital as his companion.
Dr. Moses loves exploring the mountains, reading and going to movies. Dr. Moses’ brother’s family lives in Atlanta. She enjoys spending time with her family whenever possible.
She also established the Felines Without Families Fund which provides the financial means for 4 Seasons Cat Hospital to treat sick or injured cats and kittens who have no family or guardian to provide for them. She also provided discounted services to FURR (Feline Urgent Rescue and Rehabilitation) until they relocated to the coast.
