I have worked for Cats Protection for ten years.

My introduction to the charity was born of my love of cats.

I started to volunteer at the National Cat Adoption Centre, which I enjoyed so much so that I applied for a full time position when one became available.

I was lucky enough to be offered the role, which meant a total change in career, having worked in a call centre for more than nine years. But I never looked back.

I am now a Senior Cat Care Assistant.

My role includes advising and supporting new and existing staff and volunteers, maintaining cat records, fundraising, rehoming cats, assisting the vet on her rounds and general cat care when I am very much hands-on with the cats.

I work with a very supportive and dedicated team who strive to give all cats the best possible care during their stay with us. Watching cats go to their new homes is the very best part of the day.
