Members are at the heart of OneKind Scotland – without your support, we couldn’t be the strong voice for Scotland’s animals that we are today. We want to share our members’ stories, and highlight their passion and commitment to animal welfare, so we’ll be putting the spotlight on a different member each fortnight.
Today, meet Kirsty, whose variety of interests include turtles and guitar solos.
Describe yourself in a sentence.
From an early age I was aware of the cruelty of mankind towards the animals with whom we share this planet and these concerns continue to shape my adult life in many ways.
Why did you join OneKind?
Specifically in relation to the campaign against fox hunting, but in general to be part of the voice for all animals in Scotland.
What’s an issue relating to animal welfare that you’re particularly passionate about?
There are so many that it’s difficult to give one, but any form of hunting for pleasure has no place in a civilised society.
If you had to pick one native Scottish animal as a favourite, what would it be?
Seeing any wild creature flourishing in its natural habitat is always a joy but I’m always thrilled to see red deer.
Tell us about about your current pet, or your favourite past pet?
A gentle natured cat called Dougal who is 19 and a half with numerous health problems but still some quality of life.
What’s on your current music playlist?
Any rock tracks with guitar solos.
What’s one thing you’d really like to do before the end of the year?
Go snorkelling in warm seas and spot a turtle.
