About Carrie Goolsby

Hi! I'm Carrie!

For the past 20 years I have workd side by side with veterinary professionals and pet lovers to hep cats, and their owners, stay happy and healthy. In 2002, when my career shifted to work with a feline-only veterinarian, I found my real passion. 

I continually strive to expand my skill set, and teach others through group presentations, speaking engagements or one on one consultations. I cover topics that include low stress feline handling techniques for practitioners and staff, cat behavior, health, and more.

 As a cat advocate, I enjoy sharing my knowledge, experiences with any and everyone to improve of the cat's nine lives. 



"Carrie was such a big help to my family and I for our baby Poe who unfortunately had FIP. Carrie was very knowledgeable ,kind, and has a big heart . We definitely recommend Nurse Carrie to everyone." ~ Briana P

"Carrie was a big help for our family when we adopted 3 kittens. Not only did she run thru check list after checklist with me, supplies, safety, health and wellness. She has even followed up to see how we are getting along. One of the boys had some coughing sneezing thing i had never heard. She pointed me in the right direction. We got antibiotics and eyedrops for the babies. I'm so glad that there is a Cat Nurse Carrie i can turn to."   ~Sarah C

"Cat Nurse Carrie really knows her stuff!! She has over 16 years of experience in feline medicine. I work with her at Cat Hospital of Portland and the knowledge and care she brings to our patients is outstanding. The cats immediately feel at ease with her. She truly has a gift. I trust her judgement and skills 100%. I recommend her services to everyone I know. Thank you Cat Nurse Carrie!!!"    ~~Wendy S.
