Meet the most passionate team in cat care


Head Vet and Partner

Sarah started SimplyCats in 2009 with Paul her life and business partner, as they felt cats needed their own exclusive clinic.  Her passion for cats has lasted since she adopted her first stray as a newly qualified vet and she's loved working with them ever since! She has two ginger cats at home, in addition to horses, dogs, goldfish and children.

Veterinary Surgeon

Carys has loved cats since a displaced feline moved in with her family when she was six - so much so that she decided to become a vet soon after! She graduated from vet school in 2017, and has also volunteered at her local cat shelter. She has a gorgeous and playful rescue cat, Khoshekh, and enjoys fell-walking, novels, and arts and crafts.

Veterinary Surgeon

Michelle has loved cats since she was a young child inspired by her childhood cat Fluffy Flufkins. She started cat rescue in the United States in 2004 and has been active in animal rescue ever since. Her love for cats and wanting to do more to help them drove her across the ocean and complete a veterinary degree at Royal Veterinary College. She currently lives with 3 rescue cats she brought with her from the United States: Ollie, Itty Bitty and Luna.



Head Registered Veterinary Nurse

Kelly has always wanted to work with animals, since nursing her teddies back to health in the busy veterinary practice that was her grandma’s living room. She studied in Preston and worked in small animal and mixed practices in Newcastle before joining our team in 2016 for what she describes as her dream job – and to date it remains the best decision of her career!
