Meet Cat

Hi, everyone,
I’m Cat, the owner of Patchwork Petcare!
I live with my partner, one very cheeky ferret, four beautiful snakes, and some tarantulas who make visitors uncomfortable.

Animals are a huge part of my life, and always have been. I was lucky enough to have been born into a large family of 4 humans, and I-don’t-even-know-how-many animals. My family was always passionate about rescuing those who have been overlooked due to health problems, difficult behaviour, or simply being too old. So I learned, from a very young age, the importance of being gentle, patient, and empathetic towards all animals, and could never imagine a life without them.

I gained my Diploma in Animal Management from Sparsholt College Hampshire back in 2014, and have remained working with animals ever since. I have a strong interest in animal psychology and nutrition, and have long been an advocate of holistic care and natural feeding.

My passion for animals has led me through some vastly different jobs and volunteer positions over the years, from the age of 16, including rescue and rehoming centres, zoological collections, kennels, catteries, farms and equestrian yards. I have had the privilege of working with an array of animals; wild, exotic and domestic, and have learned such invaluable lessons and skills from each experience.

I had considered running a pet care business for many years, and after facing redundancy in August 2020 (thanks, COVID!), I thought to myself, “what’s the worst that could happen?” Or at least something to that effect, if not a bit less delicately put. And so, here we are!

I can’t wait to meet you and all of your wonderful pets.

See you soon
