Layna M. Irwin, DVM
Dr. Irwin’s adoration of kitties began at the age of the three with her first cat, Candy – so named because ‘I love cats, and I love candy.’ As her appreciation for the special intricacies of the human-feline bond grew, her pursuit of a career in feline-exclusive medicine was only natural. Dr. Irwin believes that this special bond is best served through compassionate care for kitties and sharing her knowledge with the people they have touched.
Dr. Irwin’s professional interests including nutrition, behavior, and medicine. Outside the clinic, she enjoys spending her free time hiking, biking, and kayaking, as well as curled up knitting with her four kitties: Norabel, Twila, Margeaux, and Alexxy.

Heather is a student at Ashworth College working towards becoming a Certified Veterinary Technician. She is a proud East Coast native who came to Boise in 2014 and brought her love of cats.

She’s passionate about helping owners provide the best care possible for the animals they love.
Chief Feline Officer
Ivan became the Chief Feline Officer of Boise Cat Clinic in 2022. After being found at night by the side of the road at 8 weeks of age and weighing one pound, he attended MeowTown University and majored in business. Post-graduation he co-founded the startup pet food company, Mouse in a Can. After a successful stint in the petfood sector, he switched careers to tech, where he became an industry leader after designing the EBAS, or Empty Bowl Alert System. These achievements naturally led to the development of an online food delivery company for pets called Bowl Bolt, as well as a brand of toys specifically for non-sighted cats. His keen senses compensate for lack of sight, and when he’s not working or eating, he can be found chasing his battery-operated crinkle butterfly, or enjoying calming cat concertos. We’re excited to see where his creative mind will take BCC!
Former Chief Feline Officer (2008-2022)
Originally from Caldwell, Idaho, Noodle started his career as an abandoned farm cat. After his neuter, he attended Purrrdue College where he studied new processes for manipulating humans. Considered an expert in his field, he published multiple papers on the topic (“How to Get the Treats You Want” and “Putty In Our Paws: Snuggling for Dummies”). After graduation and adoption, he spent most of his free time developing ways to harness more sunlight and published a book: “Counter-Surfing 101.” Noodle spent over a decade managing the people in our company. We will forever remember and miss his sweet, loving spirit, and the joy he brought to everyone he met. He made us better. Rest in peace, dear Noodle.
