Meet Dr. Corinne Thomas

Dr. Corinne Thomas started with a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters in Occupational Therapy before she decided to follow her passion and work with animals, especially cats. After working as an occupational therapist for several years, she moved to Colorado with the goal of being accepted to Colorado State University to pursue a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.

She graduated in 2003, earning the American Association of Feline Practitioners award. After working in general practice in the Denver area for a few years, she decided to open a feline-only clinic.

In 2007, she opened her cat clinic close to home in Loveland and names if after her love for all cats: “For the Love of Cats Veterinary Clinic.” Open now for 14 years, she continues to serve all her wonderful clients and their kitties.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband Craig and their 3 rescued cats Sophie, Lucas, and Satara, hiking, reading, and playing the piano

Meet Our Team

Monique | Certified Veterinary Technician

Monique joined the team at For the Love of Cats Veterinary Clinic in January of 2013. In college, she was originally studying art and graphic design before falling in love with the science of anatomy and biology. It wasn’t long before she realized her calling lay in the veterinary world.
She became a certified veterinary technician when she graduated from the Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology in December of 2012.

Whenever she isn’t at the clinic caring for kitties, Monique spends time with her own fur babies at home: Viviane, Neesa, Daario, and Tiriki. She also loves cooking and nail art.

Katie Lucas | Certified Veterinary Technician

Katie Lucas is a Certified Veterinary Technician who began working at For The Love of Cats in the Spring of 2017. Katie completed her studies in Iowa in 2012 and shortly after became a Certified Technician with a focus on working with cats. With a dream of moving West,  Katie decided Colorado would be her new home. She moved here with her husband, Steve, their dog, Toto and two cats, Lucy and Millie. At work Katie enjoys working on dental cleanings and laser therapy. In her free time Katie loves singing, enjoying the sunshine and relaxing with her own animals.   

Angie | Veterinary Assistant

Angie started working at For the Love of Cats Veterinary Clinic, July of 2020. Since then, her love for cats has grown even stronger, and her love for working in the veterinary field even greater. Angie moved to Loveland with her two dogs. During her time working at For the Love of Cats, a sweet cat (Saphira) was in need of a home while her dad is away overseas. Angie happily took her in and loves not only working with kitties all day, but also having one in her home. Any time Angie is not at work, she is out and about enjoying the sun and hiking in the mountains.

Kaileen | Veterinary Assistant

Kaileen has lived in Colorado her entire life. She graduated from CSU with a bachelor’s degree in Zoology in 2017. She has always loved working with animals and is lucky to start working at For the Love of Cats Veterinary Clinic in June of 2021. Since working here, she has adopted three amazing (troublemaker) cats from different walks of life. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, watching new shows, and exploring local areas with her partner, Seth. She hopes to continue working here for a long time as everyone is so wonderful and welcoming.

Brittany | Receptionist

Brittany moved to Colorado 10 years ago from Florida. Her love for kitties landed her at For the Love of Cats Veterinary Clinic in the Fall of 2021.

Pickles | Head of Sales

Pickles has enjoyed the title of resident office cat and head of sales at For the Love of Cats Veterinary Clinic since the Spring of 2018. This lovely lady is certainly the Queen of the clinic! She loves the sunshine, and can often be found napping in her bed near the door, with sunbeams gleaming off her silky fur. Her other special napping spot is on Dr. Thomas’ office chair – helping our doctor with her many tasks throughout the day, but often leaving Dr. Thomas with only a mere inch or two of the seat to herself!

If you are lucky, Pickles will even choose to sit directly on top of the paper you are writing on, and rub her face against your hand as you write.  Besides sunbathing, napping, and helping with toy sales, she likes playing with her crunchy ball and eating her favorite treats.  Pickles is adored by the whole staff and clients alike.
