Alexandria, Virginia (March 21,2022) – Kingstowne Cat Clinic is proud to announce that they are an official Cat Friendly Practice (CFP). As a Cat Friendly Practice, this practice has met specific criteria that demonstrates their unique ability to treat and handle feline patients gently and with respect. The Cat Friendly Practice program helps veterinary teams stay ahead of best practices in feline medicine. As a result, cats and their caregivers will have a less stressful visit because the practice is tailored to felines’ specific needs. What’s more, Cat Friend Practices like Kingstowne Cat Clinic regard the program as being key to their practice’s ongoing success.
To make Kingstowne Cat clinic more comfortable for all of its furriest friends, Kingstowne Cat Clinic staff members have worked over the past few months to implement changes to make the hospital more “cat friendly.”

What is a Cat Friendly Practice?
The Cat Friendly Practice program is leading the movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. The program provides support and in-depth, quality educational content to help veterinary professionals better understand the unique needs of cats. A designated Cat Friendly Practice has taken the extra time and steps to have the ability to consider each cat’s experience and care. All Cat Friendly Practices must meet certain physical and educational requirements to achieve the designation.
In 2012, the Cat Friendly Practice program was launched and since then it has continuously gained momentum and flourished. As of yearend 2019, there were more than 1,200 designated CFP veterinary clinics. According to the most recent 2019 Cat Friendly Practice Survey, the majority of respondents experience an increase in feline visits, revenue, and patients.
“We are very proud of each approved veterinary clinic for their dedication to the Cat Friendly Practice program in striving for improved excellence in feline care,” said Dr. Kelly St. Denis, President of the AAFP board of Directors. “The feedback from designated CFP’s has been incredible. Veterinarians report very positive results and benefits for cats, clients, and the veterinary team. Equally important, we all have one goal in mind – to enhance the quality of care for cats,’ she added.
