International Cat Care welcomes two new colleagues


International Cat Care (iCatCare’s) mission is to engage, educate and empower people throughout the world to improve the health and welfare of cats by sharing advice, training and passion. The charity’s small but dedicated team has been expanding, and iCatCare are delighted to welcome two new members of staff: Ginette Bryant, who joins the Business department, and Sarah Endersby, who joins the Veterinary department.

Ginette has over 20 years of business experience within the veterinary and animal health sector. Sarah is a vet who worked in practice for 6 years, before gaining several years of experience in the field of animal health. Ginette and Sarah will be fundamental in helping the charity work towards their vision that all cats, owned and unowned, are treated with care, compassion and understanding. 

Ginette says of joining: “I am thrilled to have joined the team at iCatCare. Having had the opportunity to collaborate with the charity over many years I have seen the fabulous work that they do both in the UK and internationally. In my role as Business Director I will be trying to develop and maintain mutually beneficial relationships with our partners, supporters and sponsors to enable us to have more reach for all our projects. I am joining at a very exciting time with our 60th anniversary happening next year. Although the charity’s knowledge and expertise on all things cat, which enhances the welfare of cats owned and unowned worldwide is tremendous, we still have work to do!” 

Sarah says: “I’m very excited to join the team at iCatCare. For many years, I have been impressed with the work the charity does promoting the health and wellbeing of all cats around the globe, so being able to be part of the charity is a dream come true! I am looking forward to supporting the charity’s ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic programme – helping to make it even more mainstream, as well as helping clinics learn how to be cat friendly in their approach to feline patients and to help them with the accreditation process. Hopefully this can overcome one of the biggest problems in feline health – cat owners avoiding bringing their cat to the clinic because they find it a stressful experience, which of course limits the opportunity to provide healthcare to cats. Basically, I am looking forward to helping spread the need to ‘think cat’ in vet practices and to show the benefits of being cat friendly.”
