  1. I’ve followed her for years and I really enjoy what she does.
    There are so many people nowadays who provide educational media in order to form individuals on how to properly look after cats/kittens. Some are really informative whereas others only provide basic information. But I really enjoy watching that lady’s videos and learn a lot from them. She remains one of my favourite kitten rescuers!
