Sarah lives in the countryside with her husband, two children, a cat, and two dogs. She loves gardening with the kids, especially growing her own vegetables.
Daniel (Bsc. Biology)

Dr. Hannah Godfrey (BVETMED MRCVS)
Hannah graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011. Although she initially worked at a busy mixed practice, she’s now focused on small animals. Hannah has developed passions for soft tissue surgery as well as canine and feline dentistry after following training in those areas.
Carla Shaik (Bsc. Animal Behaviour)
Carla has always had a passion for cats and has owned them all her life. Since graduating with a BSC in Animal Behaviour and Welfare, Carla has written for a national cat magazine for eight years and more recently branched out into becoming a freelance animal writer full-time. She also spent 3 years working as a teaching support officer at the College of West Anglia, educating students on the appropriate handling, and health check procedures for a wide variety of animals. Cats are her passion and she couldn’t imagine a life without them!
Catpointers operates from the philosophy that visitors deserve high-quality information. We think of the user first, and monetization comes second.
Our mission is to help make the world a better place for cats. We aim to achieve this by:
- – Promoting a safe, fun, and healthy environment for cats with our guides and suggestions
- – Educating and creating awareness with factual articles written and/or proof-read by qualified veterinarians
- – Testing cat products and making recommendations based on their price and perceived value
