Hi! I'm Ashleigh DeStefano, the owner and caretaker at Inn To Cats. The idea for Inn To Cats came about after searching for care for my own feline family members when I traveled. I found many places that catered to dogs, but only seemed to offer cat care as an afterthought. Most only had a tiny, boring box for them to stay in with the loud, smelly dogs (which can be scary for cats!) right down the hall. My cats are very social and curious, so I didn't feel comfortable leaving them at home either because when they are bored and lonely they tend to get themselves into trouble. I wanted a safe place, with positive stimulation and the comforts of home, for them to stay so I didn't feel guilty or worried about leaving them. Combining more than 20 years of service in the veterinary and pet care field with a deep affection for felines and their physical and emotional well-being, Inn To Cats was created.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude with an AAS in Veterinary Technology from Northern Virginia Community College in May 2017 and passed my board exam in August of 2017 to become a licensed veterinary technician. I have a special interest in indoor-cat environmental enrichment and hyperthyroid/kidney and heart disease/diabetic patient care. I share my home with five awesome kitties - Winter, Ninja, Thunder Griffin, Elon, and Kora.
