About Patricia A Dingman

Dr. Patricia Dingman is the Medical Director for Operation Catnip in Gainesville, FL. Dr. Dingman was a G.I. brat, growing up mostly in Okinawa and Pennsylvania. Though she had worked in a veterinary clinic as a kid, it wasn’t until she moved to Florida in 2006 that she became obsessed with Trap-Neuter-Return. She volunteered for Operation Catnip for 12 years before officially joining the team so that she can follow her community cat management and student training dreams. In her free time, Dr. Dingman loves traveling and can occasionally be persuaded to climb a mountain with her fiancé. She has a tortie and Pomeranian to keep her busy and hopes to add a hamster in the near future.
