Video of my guardian petting me. Remember, I am the same cat that Donald DeForge, VMD, LLC stated was “aggressive.” He would not let me go home for 12 days because I “posed a threat” to my guardian. My medical record states several times that Donald DeForge, VMD, LLC wanted a letter from my guardian’s doctor before he would release me from his facility.

In loving memory of Simba – March 31, 1995 ~ January 25, 2012
Disclaimer: “Lisa Taylor-Austin believes there was merit to her claims that Dr. Deforge negligently cared for her cat, Simba, and that he misrepresented whether he was a Board-certified dental specialist.  Dr. Deforge denies these claims and asserts that the Department of Public Health’s veterinary board cleared him of any wrong doing. However, Dr Deforge agreed to pay $7,500.00 to compensate Ms. Taylor-Austin because he believed the risks inherent in any lawsuit and the cost of missing two weeks from his practice made it imprudent to go to trial.”Note: My guardian’s costs for my medical care and all legal avenues exceeded $20,000.
