Dr. Jennifer Woll is an emergency veterinarian and the owner and founder of Dr. J’s Perfect Dolls, a cattery based west of Chicago that features Ragdoll kittens. Dr. Woll has been a Ragdoll cat breeder since 1994. The Ragdoll, a breed discovered and subsequently promulgated by breeder Ann Baker in the 1960s, is a combination of the Persian, Burmese, and Birman breeds. The cat is known as a “Ragdoll” because they have an endearing tendency to go limp when picked up like a child’s ragdoll. Ragdolls grow to be large, muscular cats with white or cream coats that rarely become matted.
At Dr. J’s Perfect Dolls, Dr. Jennifer Woll works daily to ensure that each kitten will grow to be healthy. The kittens are kept in groups of five or fewer, and live in a comfortable environment. Breeding cats are screened for heart and kidney disease. Furthermore, Dr. Woll screens each kitten regularly for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), and internal and external parasites.
Dr. Jennifer Woll has practiced as a veterinarian since 1993. She was an Associate Veterinarian at the Carol Stream Animal Hospital in Carol Stream, Illinois, until 1996. She worked for Petsmart Veterinary Services from 1996 to 1998. Since 1998, she has worked as a Veterinarian at Lisle, Illinois’ Emergency Veterinary Services, which provides overnight care for ill pets when other veterinary clinics are closed.
