Blog: Cat nurse Becky

Cat nurseBecky is a vet nurses at the National Cat Adoption Centre.

"I work at the veterinary clinic on site three days a week alongside the Vet and Head Nurse.

"My role is to assist with any treatments and surgical procedures the cats may need to undergo whilst in our care before they can be homed. This includes Blood Tests, Vaccinations, Neutering, Dentals, X-rays etc.

"My training started at the Royal Veterinary College in London where I completed a foundation degree in Veterinary Nursing before moving back to East Sussex where my career blossomed.

"I have been very lucky to have worked in some fantastic Veterinary practices and referral centres, rescuing my own cat Jelly-Bean along the way.

"I have now been qualified 10 years and I have been very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work here at the Cats Protection.

"After having a family it enables me to balance the love I have for my job and time with my children, who I often bring here to attend open days and events.

"I have always been a lover of Cats and being a part of the Cats Protection enables me to help them find the home they deserve whilst making their health and welfare a top priority."
