I was put in charge of all movement licences when they came into force and dealt with irate and upset people. I worked with Defra, Trading Standards, CPL and RSPCA on a daily basis. I was in charge of stocktaking and dispensing medications. I helped in ceasarian sections on occasions and hand-reared kittens. All this was as well as my daily reception duties, dealing with monies and backing up the computer systems each night after doing a security check.
I have been rescuing injured and unwanted animals for over twenty years now and know how to care for them during their many and varied illnesses. I love working with animals and enjoy seeing them progress and learn to trust. It is wonderful to see an animal be able to run and play when they could not stand without help in the beginning.
March 2000 - September 2000
I worked in a busy city centre vet surgery running their reception. I booked in clients and their pets, dispensed prescriptions from the pharmacy, ordered medicines and specialist foods, I answered the telephone and dealt with queries, complaints and emergencies. I dealt with larger organisations such as DEFRA, TRADING STANDARDS, RSPCA and CPL on a daily basis. I was responsible for movement licences when the foot and mouth outbreak occurred. I did daily back-ups on the computer and was responsible for the security of the property. I worked closely with the vets and nurses but worked just as well on my own. I helped with some operations when more people were needed. I really enjoyed my job.
QuTee is a domestic black and white cat. He was found in a box with two black female kittens when only two weeks old. I hand fed him and helped with his ablutions. He became ill and caught cat flu. I spent many days tending to him and putting vicks vapour rub in hot water to help him breathe. He recovered but did not seem as lively and active as his sisters. After getting him vet checked again, I discovered that he had developed Cerebella, a brain stem disease, which made him shake and wobble when he moved. I was advised to have him put to sleep for his sake, but he had such a strong character and was so gentle I decided to give him some special time and when the decision had to be made, I would do so knowing I did everything I could. QuTee is now eleven years old, which is five years older than the vet told me was his expected lifespan. He learned how to jump stiff-legged and trot like a pony to stop falling over. He can beat the dogs in a race upstairs and there is not a single day that I regret giving him that chance of happiness.
