After 17 years spent working in London for for organisations such as the BBC, Bloomberg and Reuters, Clare Hemington took voluntary redundancy to follow her dream of working with animals.
She went on to complete a short course in cat behaviour before taking on various roles within a number of small animal welfare charities.
The turning point came when she was taken on by an established cat behaviourist with whom she spent nearly seven years, at the end of which she qualified as a fully accredited cat behaviourist in her own right. She believes that this experience, along with many years spent running her own cat sitting business gives her a unique perspective on, and insight into the ‘funny ways’ of not only the cats she looks after, but their human owners too!
The Hairy Tails of a Cat Sitter is Clare’s debut book.
