    Diana's hobby is travelling to Asia to volunteer her time in mass sterilisation projects of cats and dogs in poor and rural communities. Her beloved Cornish Rex cats both passed away in their senior years, so she now gets her cat fix by coming in to work every day!

Nick has worked with Balmain Veterinary Hospital as an Animal Attendant for the past two years, predominately within Balmain Cat Boarding. An animal lover since birth, Nick has two Border Collies Red and Nelson, who swoon at his feet and listen attentively whenever he speaks. He trained each dog and the locals all comment on how well behaved they are.

    Nick has been working since he left Glebe High (now Blackwattle Campus), 23 years ago. He's also a long time Inner Westie and known to many for his entertaining personality and his love of life. Never shy to comment, Nick has a very vocal relationship with the cats boarding at the hospital and often reports on his "interesting" conversations.

    Nick loves working with the cats in our boarding facility. Nick thinks cats are very entertaining and loves playing with the all the boisterous cats with string toys. All our cats love to run up and say hello to Nick – which he loves when they rub against his legs and give him head-butts.

    Nick loves working with the team at Balmain Vet and is a social butterfly around our halls. The vet hospital is Nick's dream job, though he still harbours ambitions of working with the wilder animals found in Africa where he has been on safari on two occasions.
