Catrina was signed by Pethealth to be the Company's spokesperson for the Pet Protect brand in 2009. Pet Protect was acquired by Pethealth in July 2008 from D&G Insurance. Catrina's early success started with her TV appearance as the Cadbury Flake girl in 1985 which spawned a career in entertainment reporting with the BBC and NBC Europe as the host of the nightly, prime-time chat show VIP. Her work with Pethealth has included hosting the Company's social networking site for pet owners and the series of interviews with well-known U.K. personalities who also share her passion for companion animals for the PetProtect brand. Catrina's Celebrity Chat interviews to date have included former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis, Bucks Fizz member Cheryl Baker, and Stedman Pearson, formerly of Five Star and who has embarked on a world tour playing Michael Jackson in the 'Thriller Live Tour'. These interviews can be seen at

"We are delighted that The Lady has chosen to feature Catrina in its latest edition," said Susan Arts, Vice-President of Marketing at Pethealth Inc. "Catrina's life as a successful career woman, wife and mother resonates with our U.K. customer base which is largely made up of women looking to find balance in their lives, managing their careers and busy households."

Catrina's next interview, which will also soon be featured on, will be with well-known U.K. personality Selina Scott.
