What is your favourite animal and why?
It just has to be cats! I love their looks, agility and personalities! A dog will love you unconditionally. but when a cat gives you its affection you are truly honoured! There is nothing more comforting than the warm weight of a cat on your lap which is purring so loudly you can't hear the television! 

What pets do you have and what are their names?
I have a border collie crossbreed called Shep who is so incredibly goofy I am convinced that all the border collie intelligence was bred out in the cross(!) and cat called Mrs Amy Tibbins (named by my 6 year old son!) 

What's the best pet name that you've ever come across?
It has to be a young black cat called 'Blacksmith'. When I asked the owners why they picked that name they told me it was because every time he saw it, he made a bolt for the door! 

What is your favourite famous animal?
It has to be 'Black beauty'. Although fictional, as a child I loved the story and used to wish I could have a black thoroughbred like the one on the series! 

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets?
It has to be the friendly and caring attitude of all the staff. Its lovely to work in a practice where people are really helpful and the pets really do come first.

What is your favourite animal and why?
I really struggled with this question, basically because I just can't choose one! I genuinely love any animal that is soft and furry, big or small, dry or scaly, they are all beautiful creatures I can't choose just one species.

This has to be my own first 2 guinea pigs I had as a child and I called them Sid & Ethel, they set me on a path for life.

It has to be 'Spud' the bulldog from Celebrity Juice, he's so cute in all the little outfits they dress him up in.
