Dr. Restine

Dr. Lisa Restine received her DVM degree from Western University of Health Sciences in Southern California. At twelve years old, her family cat, Rowdy, became ill with hepatic lipidosis (fatty liver disease). Watching the veterinarian treat her cat and bring her back to health ignited a passion in Dr. Restine for feline medicine. She has achieved board-certification in feline medicine and has a special interest in dentistry and internal medicine. Dr. Restine followed this passion into her professional life, working for over six years as a veterinary technician for two clinics in her home state of New Jersey (born and raised!). Simultaneously, she earned her undergraduate degree in Animal Science from Rutgers University where she also participated in the equestrian team, worked with the Seeing Eye Puppy Raising Club, and did research with Standardbred mares. She continued to work as a veterinary technician while studying at Western University, spending her free summers engaged in activities such as studying nesting habits and survival rates of terrapin turtles in the wild. In her spare time, Dr. Restine enjoys dance-both ballet and ballroom, cross stitching, and remaining active, especially by running. She lives in a full house with her three domestic long hair cats, Ruby, Deku, and Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin, FBI. She spoils them all. Dr. Restine loves working with the wonderful staff at the Alamo Feline Health Center and giving your cats the best medicine possible!

Dr. Lisa Durso

Dr. Lisa Durso Keel is a native Pennsylvanian. She gained her southern roots attending Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in the top 10% of her class in 2014. Immediately after graduation, she practiced emergency medicine for a year and was called back to bulldog country for a small animal rotating internship, which she completed in 2016. Shortly after, she relocated to Abilene, Texas with her husband, who is an Air Force pilot. His career recently landed them in beautiful San Antonio, and they are expecting their first child in the summer of 2021. Dr. Durso has always been a crazy cat lady. Growing up, she and her sister (also a veterinarian) were responsible for caring for their 5 indoor cats and at a young age, she learned how to administer insulin injections to her favorite cat that developed diabetes, which sparked her interest in feline medicine. Dr. Durso also has completed courses in ultrasonography and acupuncture. She is working towards board certification in canine and feline medicine. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, two cats and two dogs, traveling, long distance running and anything outdoors.

Social Coordinator I'm the reason this place is still open. Without me these humans would be lost. I help with public relations, grief counseling, and anger management. I spend my days just getting out there with the people and patients and getting to know everyone, sometimes even if they don't want to meet me. My schedule stays pretty booked up, for some reason they keep booking my appointments under Dr. Norsworthy's name, but don't worry I'll be the one taking care of you. In my free time I like to steal and hide medical equipment and hide in the supply closet to keep the staff on their toes.

Behind the scenes If you are lucky you may get to see me, sometimes I bestow the privilege of a pet to some people. I am far too beautiful for the common human to touch. The humans that work here are still learning that I am to be pampered with no real acknowledgement as any true cat should. While humans are beneath me, for the most part I love other cats and am an amazing momma cat. I am very progressive in that way. I help out around here and monitor patients for the humans around here. While I may have all the looks I also have the brains, I consult with Dr. Norsworthy about surgical procedures and treatments. In my free time I like to chase toys. My favorite thing is to put my kills in the middle of the floor so the humans here can praise me for the great job I have done, don't get me started on my ability to catch that red light that comes from the magical object.

Philbert aka Phil

Investment adviser, CFO (chief feline officer) The way the economy is going you can be sure I am saving my cat nip knots for hard times. I have to keep an eye on everyone here to make sure they are being frugal and smart with the food and treats. I make sure to clean every last morsel that these other wasteful cats leave in the bowl. I have been trying to advise Dr. Norsworthy to invest in plenty of cat condo real estate and to be sure to put his money in the cat treat market. So far he hasn't listened and that will be why he will never get to retire. I don't have free time because I spend most of my time on standby in the office in case Dr. Norsworthy needs to discuss business management.

Boarding manager/Therapist I am not one for the fast paced life like those other guys are. I enjoy being able to talk to all the diverse cats that come through our boarding and get to know their histories and background. A mellow guy like myself enjoys managing the boarding facility and lounge area upstairs. I like to organize the activities itinerary for all the long term boarders, such as bird watching and mouse chasing, got to keep the mind and the body busy to keep healthy. Don't think that I am a guy that is all work and no play. I hang out with all the pretty girls that work here and we gab life drama while we have lunch, they sometimes need someone with four legs to be straight with them.
