Cats Protection Brighton & District was set up just over a year ago and is run by a group of cat-mad volunteers. We thought you might like to know who these volunteers are, so we’re running a series of profiles about each and every one of them.
What is your volunteering role, and the best thing about it?
Foster carer. I help a homeless cat to live in a happy and stress-free environment where they can be pampered up until they find their forever home.
What is your job outside of Cats Protection?
Receptionist at People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals.
Do you have any cats?
My foster cat Diesel (below).
Breed: Domestic short-hair
Likes face rubs and back strokes, playing with toy mice, Felix cat food, fleece blanket, peace and quiet!
Dislikes sudden movements, the sound of a plastic bag, being touched on the flanks
The moment you knew you were a cat person…
Probably the first time I ever saw a cat. What’s not to love about these gorgeous creatures?
What would you do if you were a cat for an hour?
Wow my friends with my new found yoga skills!
Give us two interesting non-cat related facts about yourself.
- My eyes are different colours: one is green, the other hazel
- My two biggest hates at school were the cross-country run and science but now my favourite sport is trail running and last year I finished a degree in biological science!
Diesel is still looking for a home. Find out more about him at Cats Protection Brighton & District where you can also discover how you can help us rescue more cats in need.
