Paula Warner, runs and personally oversees every aspect of  "The Enchanted Cat", seven days a week.
She sold her former "high drama" pet taxi emergency business in 2002 in order to be closer to her family
in Antioch.

For 15 years, she owned the veterinary ambulance service "Pet Taxi Emergency" in Los Angeles. Her
business involved racing to the scene of various "downed-animal" calls. Vehicles were equipped with
oxygen, stretchers, gurney, ropes, etc. to help distressed animals safely survive their trip to the hospital
(even if they fell down a cliff). Paula was trained in animal CPR at UCLA. She would then work closely with
veterinary emergency staff to complete life-saving measures. Consoling distraught owners was also a big
part of the job. She was eventually "on-call" with every veterinary hospital in Los Angeles. A great lady
bought the business and Paula still serves as a consultant to the business today.

If interested, see the "About Us" page to see the celebrity roster of people she worked with while in
Hollywood. Working with aggressive cats became a side-line that she still practices with rescue and feral
cats. She was considered the
original "cat whisperer" and owns the much-sought-after Internet domain
name  Cesar Milan, the "dog whisperer" was somebody she worked with and
shared ideas with long before he became famous.

She was a featured guest regarding animal issues on many radio and TV news shows, including CBS,
NBC, ABC, and Animal Planet. Animal activism to protect all animals continues to be her passion today.

Previous to discovering the wonderful animal world, Paula received a bachelors degree in journalism and
worked at CBS-TV news in Los Angeles.
