Susan Little

Susan is a proud Canadian Bluenoser (bet you don't know what that means!) and was even a Caper for a while during her younger years. She graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College so long ago that we won't mention the year. Susan never had a pet cat as a child, so it's surprising that she's always been interested in feline medicine. She has edited and co-authored approximately 10 kg worth of textbooks (that's over 20 lb for some of you) and must be a glutton for punishment because she's in the middle of another one. Recently, she has admitted that she has two dogs.
