I have been lucky enough to have held my dream job for the last thirty-two years here at Sandhole. The premises have moved over the years but it certainly remains a great place to work; with a team of very dedicated people whose aim is not only to make animals well, but also to give them all the love and attention they would receive if they were our own.

My love for animals started when I was very small; thanks to our neighbour's ginger and white cat Ruffy. We moved away when I was four years old and got two little kittens - mine was ginger and white cat and so of course he was named Ruffy!

Over the years I have had many different animals and at one time bred and showed boxers.  I now have a ten-year old black and white cat called Gracie who rules the household.
