Louisa Hopwood

Owned by Maine Coons for over 15 years, I have shown all over the UK with TICA & FIFE, often with multiple cats of my own and agenting others.  Swapping my day job in Fashion and Luxury PR & Marketing for a very different kind of catwalk at the weekends.  Growing up with cats I couldn’t imagine life without one or at least four of these magnificent animals.  All of my cats have lived indoors and I am continually looking for interesting toys and activities to amuse them when I am not on hand to entertain and serve!

Victor Carpio

I am inventor of the Dental Wand and director of Inventor Ltd. and I have a masters in business management and innovation. It was by falling in love with a cat that I rescued from a Peruvian sewer, that Inventor Cat was born. I hated the toxic position cat owners found themselves in when trying to brush their cat’s teeth. It meant we were forced to take a chance on our cat’s health to not jeopardize our bond. Thanks to my cat Lilo, I was driven to find a better way of doing things, thus, the Dental Wand was created and we began to see a world where cat’s enjoyed brushing their teeth.

Celia Haddon

Celia Haddon has written many books about cats – some of them funny, some of them serious. Her latest book is Being Your Cat, a serious dive into how cats experience life so differently from humans. She became interested in cats when she was the pet agony aunt of the Daily Telegraph. After retirement she did a degree in applied animal behaviour, followed by a Masters degree in clinical animal behaviour at Lincoln University completed at the age of 73!
