Gillian Ambers, a long-time personal friend and friend of Alacra's, died suddenly on July 21st while on a business trip to Mumbai. We are all so saddened by her loss.  A Just Giving page has been established in Gillian's memory which reads:

She had a long career in banking information services, working for Skandinaviska Enskilda, Ernst and Young, Goldman Sachs, Merril Lynch, Bear Stearns and J P Morgan, and leaves many tidy libraries and organised people . She loved animals, travel, photography, shopping and laughter. She is much missed.

 

This page is set up in her memory, and to celebrate the feline obsession of a proudly self proclaimed middle-aged spinster librarian

Gillian Cat Donations to Cats Protection are being accepted on the page.  Cats Protection is the UK's largest cat welfare charity, re-homing and reuniting around 55,500 cats and kittens every year through its network of 252 voluntary-run branches and 29 adoption centres.

Gillian loved cats.
