When one door closes, another opens; and when a health condition forced Wendy Penfold to retire from her job, she knew animals would play a part in her future.
Wendy says: “I’ve always loved animals. Even when I was working I often thought of opening a cattery instead.”
Cocoberry, a cat who is having trouble finding a home because of his fur colour, is sitting on Wendy’s lap. He’s an affectionate soul whose owner could no longer afford to care for him. Having got to know this lad well, Wendy knows his ideal home would be one where he can explore the great outdoors.
Today, she is also caring for a group of cheeky kittens who despite appearances are quite the handful, and brother and sister duo Nelson and Peaches, who will be going off to their new home at the weekend.
