Dr. Pamela Frank: I have been a member of the Cat Care team since August 1999 and I love my job. I feel very fortunate that I am able to work in an environment that caters to cats and their owners.
My husband and I graduated from Michigan State University in 1985. Yes, my husband is also a veterinarian and we married one week after graduation. We headed out east where I was employed at a couple of small animal practices. In 1990, we came home to Michigan to be closer to our families and I continued to work as a small animal practitioner. In 1995, I heard Dr. Norsworthy speak at a local veterinary conference about feline-only medicine and I became very interested in this specialty.
At Cat Care, I have been able to pursue this interest in feline health care. I really enjoy the challenge of internal medicine cases and try to attend feline continuing education when possible. I have been a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners since 1999 and the American Veterinary Medical Association since 1985.
On a personal note, I am the mother of two wonderful daughters. My oldest daughter is a software engineer and lives in Seattle with her husband and son. My youngest daughter is a journalist and works for a business magazine in Detroit. My husband is an equine veterinarian and works as a horse racing analyst for the State of Michigan I have 3 great cats – Trinity the crazy Bengal, Tonks, and Lily. They bring a smile to my face every day even when Trinity is doing something naughty or Tonks and Lily are rearranging the newspaper pile. My other passion is traveling so my husband and I plan to visit some new areas of the world in the next few years.
Dr. Tamara A. Sloan- I joined Cat Care, PC in March of 2004. Since my husband, Pat, who is not a veterinarian, refers to me as “The Crazy Cat Lady,” I guess I have the perfect job!
Although I grew up with multiple kitties in the Chicago suburbs, I attended the University of Michigan undergrad because I planned to follow my dad into human medicine. Late in my senior year I realized that I would rather treat meowy four-footed patients, so I took a year off and applied to vet school. I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in Champaign-Urbana in 2002. My husband and I immediately moved back to Southeast Michigan, where I worked for almost two years at a small animal practice before landing my dream job here at Cat Care, PC.
Pat and I live with our three cats in the western suburbs. Morrolan (aka Roly Badger) is our very dapper black and white Tuxedo chap. Seamus (“shaymus”) is the cutest, sweetest buff and white boy EVER, in my totally biased opinion! His sister, Aine (“awwwwn-ya”), is a beautiful brown tabby girl with hints of tortoiseshell on her back.
Dr. Kimberly Hunt-Lowrance - I joined Cat Care in November of 2020.
I am new to the Cat Care family but kitties have always been part of my life! My first experience in the veterinary profession when I was younger was at an all feline clinic, where I started as a kennel technician and veterinary assistant. I grew up in the metro-Detroit area and have always called it my true home.
I attended Michigan State University as an undergraduate, obtaining a B.A. in English Literature in 1996.After graduation I began a career in reference publishing, working as an editor and content manager for 16 years for a wonderful company. While I enjoyed my “old” career, I decided to finally pursue my dream of becoming a veterinarian and was accepted to the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where I graduated in 2018. While it was certainly a challenge to be an older student in graduate school, I am so happy to be doing what I truly love! Being called to serve clients and their fur babies is truly gratifying and rewarding.
I share my home with Clementine, my one-year-old energetic female orange tabby (otherwise known as “Lil’ Stinker”) and my 16-year-old senior tuxedo kitty Honey. Clementine was a stray that came into the clinic I worked at previously and she certainly keeps me on my toes! I met Honey at “Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo” 15 years ago and she has certainly lived up to being my best buddy. I enjoy reading for pleasure, catching up on good movies or television, spending time with friends on the water and the beach, and wandering up north to the Traverse City area, where I spent a lot of time as a
I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association and, most recently, the American Association of Feline Practitioners. My professional interests are feline dental health and preventive care, and senior feline medicine. Prior to working at Cat Care I worked for two years at a canine and feline small animal clinic in Southeast Michigan.
I am looking forward to working with all our wonderful Cat Care clients and their kitties!
