Aisling O’Keeffe


Professional Bio

Aisling qualified as a vet 7 years ago from University College Dublin. She has worked in a mixture of UK small animal hospitals along with Irish practices. She worked for 3 years in a feline-only hospital where she further developed her feline medicine and surgery skills. She currently lives and works in a small animal hospital in Cork, Ireland.

Aisling’s areas of interest revolve around companion animals, particularly cats. She has a certificate in small animal medicine from the University College Dublin as well as an advanced certificate in feline behaviour from the International Society of Feline Medicine.


She enjoys spending time with her husband and toddler while not at work. They do lots of walking, kayaking and camping. Aisling has also written a children’s book called Minding Mittens to help explain feline care and behaviour to kids.

Aisling’s Pets

Aisling has acquired quite a few animals working as a vet. Living with her in the countryside she has 3 dogs, 4 cats, 2 rabbits, 3 guinea pigs, 10 hens, 1 rooster and 2 pet lambs. They all enjoy life in the Irish countryside.

“I find writing quite relaxing, and I enjoy sharing any knowledge that I have about pets with a wider audience. “
