Laura Stafford

Business owner & Office Manager Areas covered:
Bounds Green, Bowes Park, Harringay, Hornsey, Muswell Hill, Palmers Green, Southgate, Stroud Green, Winchmore Hill, Wood Green

After having worked in the corporate world of data marketing, I decided that I needed to do something that was more fulfilling and I’ve never looked back! It’s not all about being paid to cuddle cats – although of course this is the best part of what we do – we truly do care for your cats as if they were our own. I’m currently “Mum” to Smudge and Moppet, two rescue kitties who have come back to England with me from Australia.

I am so proud of the work that we do and it’s all made possible by my team who are passionate about providing the best care possible. We often have team drinks and meals as we do feel like one big family – an atmosphere which is really important for what we do.

I’ve been with Cat’s Whiskers since July 2014.

I currently have just one cat, Rosso, who is a 5 year-old Maine Coon. I recently lost my Russian Blue boy Mika so plan to get another when the time is right!

I love this job because I’m cat mad!!! I enjoy meeting, caring and getting to know my clients’ cats, building trust and ensuring they are well cared for and loved in the absence of their owners. I consider myself very good at reading their body language having taken various courses in cat behaviour/language.

I am also a freelance Graphic Designer who has worked in publishing industry for over 35 years.

I’ve been with Cat’s Whiskers since July 2016 but I have many years of experience working with cats.

I have one cat of my own called Oscar – he’s a pure white domestic long hair and totally deaf!

I love this job as it is so flexible and I am an animal lover. I am also an art teacher and artist.

I joined the Cat’s Whiskers team full time in August 2019 after finishing a 3 year Art course and a nail tech course at college.

I love animals and spending time with them. I’ve lived with cats nearly all my life and don’t know life without them!

I currently have 4 cats, mother and daughter Sophie and Mindy. And rescue cats Coco and Pops. They are literally my family.

Areas covered:
Islington, Highbury, Mildmay Ward, Stamford Hill, Stoke Newington, Haggerston, Clapton, Dalston, Hackney

Cats have always been an important part of my life. Having housed many feline friends from a young age, I can hardly imagine living without their ever-humorous, often inconsiderate, but utterly comforting presence. Currently the family cats are: Timmy the greedy chops; Maybelline the drama queen; and Lennie (pictured with me here) who really doesn’t know up from down.

I joined Cat’s Whiskers part-time in August 2018 and love the work so much! I am hoping to study Veterinary Medicine in the coming years so while this job is wonderfully enjoyable it is also excellent work experience.

I can’t wait to meet some new furry pals and also reignite old friendships!

Sev (part time)

Areas covered:
Barnsbury, Clerkenwell, Angel

I joined the Cat's Whiskers team in early July 2021 after a good friend said they loved working in the team.

I've studied level 3 business at college but I love all animals especially cats and dogs. I’ve been around them as long as I remember, and they always have been around me. I currently have a dog, called Sonia, and I look after my neighbour's cats too - animals are a part of me :)
