The Staff of Meadows Cat Hospital

  • Dr.
    Laura George
    Medical Director (DVM)

    Dr. Laura L. George is the medical director co-owner and lead cat veterinarian of Meadows Cat Hospital. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary medicine and has spent the last 13+ years practicing small animal medicine. Prior to leading our cat hospital, she ran the medical operations of ~30 veterinary hospitals in Ohio and Washington. During this time she trained and mentored doctors in t hose hospitals through difficult medical cases and complex surgeries. Now focused exclusively on providing feline veterinary services, she has collectively spent the better part of two decades in medicine, cat shelter medicine and feline awareness. Her family includes her fur baby 'Opal' (her 16 year-old cat), rescued bearded dragons (Skink, Aurora, Ebony and Scooter) and her son Sebastian. Dr. George has a strong focus on preventative and internal medicine setting her apart from many area vets. 

  • Dr.
    Nicholas P. George
    Practice Manager (PhD)

    Nicholas (the other Dr. George) is the practice manager and co-owner of Meadows Cat Hospital. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a Ph.D. in Microbiology in 2010. Prior to joining our veterinary practice, he worked in Biotechnology for over 15 years. During that time he was also dedicated to feline health/ awareness and has volunteered hundreds of hours (serving as medical team coordinator, assistant and educator) at various feline rescues. He has been involved in numerous public-outreach events & local feline health campaigns. Although felines are his favorite passion project, only his love for bearded dragons rivals it. As your practice manager he works to ensure that your experience at MCH is exemplary and will work with you and within your budget to get your fur baby the best veterinary care and services. 

  • Dr.
    Courtney Proctor
    Associate Veterinarian (DVM)

    Dr. Courtney Proctor joins Meadows Cat Hospital as a life-long resident (and one of Meadows Cat Hospital's oldest clients/pet owners) of Washington State. Dr. Proctor graduated in 2015 with a degree in Animal sciences and minor in biology from Washington State University/Pullman. From there, she finished her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at St. George's University in Grenada, West Indies graduating in 2019 in the top of her class with Summa Cum Laude honors, a clinical year spent at Texas A&M and 3 internships/externships with Meadows Cat Hospital. We are ecstatic to have Dr. Proctor's modern perspective of medicine brought to the hospital along with her two-year prior training and development under Dr. George. This, her life-long residency in the Issaquah area and her passion for cats, makes her an exquisite fit for our family-owned and focused practice. As expected, Dr. Proctor is a loving pet parent of two kitties - Tippy and Tex and her corgi Hoagie. In addition to her veterinary interests, Dr. Proctor is an avid PNW hiker and lifelong soccer player/fan

Following her B.A., she completed her veterinary technician certification at PIMA. Her growing stable of pets includes her 17 year-old cat Jasmine, her dog Olina and bunny, Willow.
