A Bit About Helen
I've been running this website single-handedly since 2000. Yep, there is
no team, it's just little old me. No, I don't really know how I do it
either; though I do know it takes up virtually all of my time.
I've lived in
the UK, the USA and Germany. I currently live in England.
I'm not a vet, have never been a vet, and have no desire to be a vet -
it's a hard job. I do have a post-graduate qualification in animal
behaviour and am a provisional member of the Association of Pet
Behaviour Counsellors (APBC), which means having gained the relevant
academic qualifications, I am gaining the practical experience necessary
for full membership, time permitting.
I've had eleven cats so far, nine of them Persians or Chinchillas. What
can I say, I like 'em fluffy! You'll see photos of my cats occasionally on
the site, modelling water fountain usage for example.

person who shudders at the thought of having my life out there). I have terrible trouble logging
into facebook for some reason, so I'm not on there very often. It's far
quicker to find me via this site or
Tanya's CKD Support Group.
Follow Me on Twitter
website is also on Twitter. I think I have done about
a hundred Twitter posts so far, most of which relate to the food data
beginning to guess, I'm not really a social media person but hey, I'm
