Vicky Halls, Cat Behaviour Counsellor and author
‘I have been a keen supporter of iCatCare since the early 1990s (when the charity was the Feline Advisory Bureau). I was struck from the very beginning by how much amazing work could be done by so few people! The charity has gone from strength to strength and I am still there nearly 25 years later supporting them in any way I can. Everyone at iCatCare has enormous respect for the species and I hope that one day all cats throughout the world will benefit from the knowledge they are spreading with such passion and enthusiasm.’
Vicky has been working exclusively with cats since 1988 and specifically as a Cat Behaviour Counsellor for the past 18 years, treating behaviour problems in cats both in the UK and abroad. She is also an international bestselling author of 7 cat behaviour books for the cat-owning public and co-author of a number of veterinary textbooks. In 2008 Vicky was voted as the ‘Nation’s Favourite Cat Author’ by the readers of Your Cat Magazine.
Vicky is a Registered Veterinary Nurse and member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors. She is also a Registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council.
She works closely with International Cat Care on various behaviour and welfare projects and contributes regularly to magazines, radio and TV on cat topics. She gives lectures and seminars to veterinary professionals both at home and abroad on cat behaviour-related subjects.
Vicky also has a diploma in person-centred counselling and is a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
