Principal: Zeta Frasca BVSc MRCVS

Zeta has been working in small animal vet clinics since she was 11 years old when she started as a kennel girl in a Central London practice.

In her life she has owned and rescued countless cats, dogs, horses, tortoises, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish, green tree frogs, a salamander and an iguana. However she always dreamed of working solely with cats and in March 2008 opened London's only cat veterinary clinic. Zeta has undertaken further study in feline medicine and is a member of the ISFM, a non-profit organization committed to the welfare of cats.

She currently lives in Kew, Richmond with her baby girls Teah and Cara, two cats: Sookie and Treacle, fish and a husband (in that order of importance).

Vet: Nikki Gaut BVetMed MANZCVS (Feline Medicine) MRCVS

Nikki has always owned (or been owned by) cats, growing up with a Siamese that her parents brought back from Zambia when she was a baby. She has been qualified since 2003 working in and around London and Sydney.

Having worked at the clinic off and on since 2009, she has loved taking care of the cats of Kew and getting to know their owners as part of the Kitten to Cat family. In 2014, after four years of gruelling study and exams, she gained her ANZCVS membership in feline medicine and became a member of the ISFM Academy of Feline Practitioners, also gaining her Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Advanced Practitioner status in feline medicine the following year. She has contributed to feline textbooks, enjoys writing for magazines such as YourCat as the resident "feline expert" and is also an examiner for the ISFM Feline Nursing Certificate and Diploma. She also regularly teaches on feline neutering projects abroad. Her other recent role is as a part-time Practice Standards Scheme assessor for the RCVS.

Nikki lives in Wimbledon with her husband and darling furbaby Stanley.

Vet: James Tilling BVSc MRCVS


James has been fascinated by cats since his family were adopted by a stray cat when he was a small child.

He graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2009 and his first job was at the RSPCA Manchester Hospital where he enjoyed helping to rehome some of the many stray cats that passed through the hospital doors. His own cat Elmo was found terribly thin and completely bald but recovered very quickly and has spent the last 8 years doing nothing but sleep and eat.

James has worked in a number of veterinary practices in London and Surrey but enjoys the calm surrounds of the cat-only clinic the most. He enjoys all aspects of feline practice but has a particular interest in feline skin disease.

Head Nurse: Denise Morris RVN

Denise, our head nurse, joined the Kitten to Cat team in July 2008 after qualifing as a veterinary nurse in 2001. Having worked with animals from an early age she finally decided to leave her home in Scotland to pursue her chosen career in veterinary nursing in 1999.

Her decision to focus her career on our little feline friends came shortly after attending a lecture on puppy and kitten behaviour. Becoming fascinated with feline behaviour she jumped at the chance to work in a feline only veterinary clinic. Further to joining the team she has completed the COAPE course Think Cat on feline behaviour.

She is happily settled in Surrey with her husband and feline family (Bumble, Yuki and Penguin)

Nurse: Eva Hruskova-Brown RVN

Eva qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2009 and after working in a mixed small animal practice for five years in Windsor, where she lives, she joined Kitten to Cat in 2012. Eva's role in the clinic is mostly as a theatre and hospital nurse, but she also enjoys getting to know our clients on reception. Eva has a soft spot for our older cats who she just loves to spoil.

"Kitten to Cat is a special place to work and meeting and getting to know all our patients is fascinating! I learn something new every day and feel very lucky to be part of the Kitten to Cat team"
