VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH

Deborah Duckworth

Deborah began volunteering at Cat Haven in January as a "kitty counselor." Being that she is a retired clinical Social Worker, she thought it was appropriate (and easier) to counsel kitties! Deborah spent 3 months "counseling" Sonny and Jazzy so that they become more socialized and less scared of people. One of her favorite memories includes the day Sonny and Jazzy responded to counseling and allowed petting! Deborah also volunteers as a "matchmaker." She loves matchmaking because she gets to educate people about cats and help them decide if they want a cat or kitten. She especially likes to tell people stories about some of our older cats and encourage them to give adult cats a chance! She has 5 cats and enjoys reading mysteries and traveling in the Southwest!

THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR CAT HAVEN!
