Animals, especially cats, have been a steadfast presence in my life since childhood, contributing to my interest in animal behaviour and welfare which I went on to study at university. For me, a household is not a home without a cat and mine currently consists of our two rescues Georgie and Lennie who impart daily feline comfort and hilarity. It's a joy to have them and a privilege to care for those belonging to other people.

I’ve been with Cat’s Whiskers since the summer of 2018. With several years of cat sitting under my belt, I took on administrative responsibilities when promoted to the role of general manager. This deepened my understanding of day-to-day operations and enhanced my business acumen. Now, having taken on ownership of the company, I strive to tailor my university education and all my previous experience to provide the very best service to our clients and their delightful furry friends.

I joined the Cat’s Whiskers team full time in August 2019 after finishing a 3 year Art course and a nail tech course at college.

I love animals and spending time with them. I’ve lived with cats nearly all my life and don’t know life without them!

I currently have 4 cats, mother and daughter Sophie and Mindy. And rescue cats Coco and Pops. They are literally my family.

I joined the Cat's Whiskers team in early July 2021 after a good friend said they loved working in the team.

I've studied level 3 business at college but I love all animals especially cats and dogs. I’ve been around them as long as I remember, and they always have been around me. I currently have a dog, called Sonia, and look after my neighbour's cats too - animals are a part of me :)

I first joined the Cat’s Whiskers team in July 2021 after working in a veterinary practice for around a year. Before that I studied animal management at college. I’ve just spent a year working with the RSPCA and am very happy to be back with Cat’s Whiskers again!

I’ve had all kinds of animals throughout my life and a huge part of my home zoo are my 3 cats Baby, Lily and Cece who are like my babies.

I find it so rewarding caring for animals and know how important it is for us as owners to have peace of mind while we are away!
