A former paid dating girl in Britain says she had to work in the sex industry to take care of her 45 cats collected from the street.
A girl named Cat English says she has to spend ,000 3,000 to pa 5,000 a month to take care of her vast multitude of cats, which she has earned with “the oldest profession in the world” for almost a decade.
The 37-year-old, who has already given up living in East Lancashire in the north of England, says she has been a dancer in nightclubs since the age of 18, but later completed her studies in health and social care.
She says she always tried to find the tools to take care of the cats she found on the street and take them home.
Recalling the first time she was interviewed is a private dancer, she told the network Hull Live: “I needed money for my cats because I noticed they needed food.”
“I used to dance in the bar for one or two nights on the weekends and sometimes bring in up to pa 1,000 a night.”
At just 23 years old, she kept her profession a secret from her family.
She tells that the first cat she took home was called Petal, and lived on a nearby farm, in a colony of malnourished cats.
After she started feeding him, other cats came to get some of their food too.
Although he had an allergy to cats, Cat began to take all the cats he found.
She now has 45 cats and says she hopes to one day open her own street cat shelter.
She adds: “I hope to show people that by doing small things like taking care of them with food and water, you can make a difference.”
