The day I met Kathy Kunkel was when she gently let me know about my beloved cat’s situation. The compassion and caring in her eyes – for my cat and for me – was something my husband Drew and I would come to know very well in the years since. Dr. Kunkel has an intuitive sixth sense that guides exceptional skill. Her loving devotion to animals rises from deep within and is manifested in every possible way. How many vets put tiny socks on little paws during surgery so they won’t get cold? Or bring Christmas stockings from Santa for every furry patient hospitalized over the holidays? The specialness of Little House is also due to its wonderful, hard-working, big-hearted staff who carefully attend to the health, comfort, and safety of every animal in their care.
