Who's Who at The Scratching Post?

These are just some of our many volunteers..

 Susan Delaney: Founder and Manager of the Charity.
Works tirelessly for the welfare of the cats and devotes her life to both the cattery and the charity shop.
Steve: Treasurer and all round handy at just about everything practical!

Jean Miles: Trustee
Has 29 years experience of setting up and coordinating the local Cats Protection, with the additional title as homing officer. After her resignation as coordinator she continued as homing officer for a further 4 years. Jean is fantastic at homing big smelly tomcats to poor people who only wanted a sweet little kitten.

David Lord: Trustee. Also helps in many other areas for the charity. David has taken over from his wife Pam, who we were very sad to lose to illness earlier this year. We could not have managed without both of them.

Emma, Liz and many volunteers who make sure the cattery is running seamlessly, kept spotless, the cats are loved and well cared for and take their medicines...

Village Vet Potters Bar and Brookmans Park have been providing veterinary services for our Charity since it was set up.

A big Thanks to you all.
