KATHRYN - Volunteer
Hi, I’m Kathryn. I grew up with animals as we often ended up taking in neighbours and friends pets during the holidays. I always wanted some bunnies of my own but until I had moved to a home of my own I did not feel I had the space that they needed for a long term home. When researching bunnies to adopt I realised how many of them are sat in recuses waiting for their forever homes. It was then that I found and started volunteering for Fat Fluffs, quickly becoming a rabbit fosterer for many bunnies in need over 5 years, before deciding that I wanted to work with animals full time.
I took on the role of the medical care co-ordinator at Fat Fluffs and worked with them on a full time basis for 18months. In February 2019 I was awarded a vet nurse placement and I am now in full time work / training to achieve my dream vocation.
I learnt so much in my time working for Fat Fluffs and, despite taking on a new role, I am still very passionate about the bunnies I spent so much time caring for. I now am part of their medical advisory team and support the rabbits and Fat Fluffs team when they come to see us at the vets.
