This is a picture taken in 1991 when I received the first Jean Holzworth award for feline research.   Dr. Holzworth was in my mind the best feline medicine clinician that ever lived. She received her DVM from Cornell University and spent her entire life at the Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston.  She wrote the first modern textbook on feline medicine and I considered her a great friend and inspiration.  She gave truth to something that I always believed – you cannot be a great cat veterinarian without a deep and intimate knowledge of the species, including everything from anatomy and physiology to behavior. –Dr. P.
