Our Ambassadors

Our Society is incredibly fortunate to have some generous Ambassadors who donate their time to support the work of our Society in caring for and rehoming cats and kittens in need. Our Ambassadors are self-identified crazy-cat people and passionate about animal welfare and raising the profile of cats as companion animals.

We are so very grateful for their commitment.



Cal Wilson came across the Tasman in 2003 and has gone on to become one of Australia’s most popular comedians.

She is a favourite on television shows such as ABC’s Spicks and Specks and Good News Week, as well as Thank God You’re Here, Hughesy, We Have A Problem, Have You Been Paying Attention? and the 2022 premiere series of Would I Lie To You? Australia, all on Network Ten. 

A gifted storyteller & writer, Cal is a children’s author, penning two books called “George and the Great Bum Stampede,” and “George and the Great Brain Swappery.”

Despite an aversion to the great outdoors, Cal bravely joined the cast of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2022 which saw her take on all the usual hair-raising challenges and biblical amount of bugs the series has to offer. Taking a swift move away from creepy crawlies and into all things cake – Cal has just been announced as a brand new host of The Great Australian Bake Off which will air on Foxtel in 2023.

Cal makes no secret about being a crazy cat lover. She regularly shares the antics of her three mischievous cats on social media and weaves their stories into her comedy routines.

“I’m so excited to be an ambassador for The Cat Protection Victoria, especially now I’ve sampled their merchandise (Welcome home, Kipper). There are so many cats that deserve a loving home, and so many homes that deserve a loving companion that will demand pats, and possibly ham.

While I’m absolutely not allowed to bring home another cat, I am absolutely allowed to convince other people to bring home a cat, a role which I will be flinging myself into, wholeheartedly.

Cats are hilarious weirdos, full of unconditional love and strong opinions about whether it’s your bed or theirs. There’s nothing more soothing than a cat’s purr, and nothing more gratifying than one running to greet you when you come from work.

Also, there’s The Law of the Cat which means you legally can’t be asked to do something if there’s a cat sitting on you. Now we’ve got three, I never have to do ANYTHING”

She joined Ben & Liam in Sydney as their Producer in 2018 at triple j, then in 2020 Belle moved to Adelaide with Ben & Liam when they became Nova 919’s breakfast show. After three successful years on air in SA, in December 2022 Melbournian Belle returned home and took on an on-air role as co-host of Nova 100’s new breakfast show – Ben, Liam & Belle – alongside Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton.

Belle is passionate about animal welfare and lives by the motto ‘adopt don’t shop’. A passionate vegetarian, animal rights are at the forefront of everything Belle believes in.

“As an ambassador for CPSV, I’ll be able to show just how purrfect cats can be as the ultimate companion for anyone – the REAL man’s best friend in my eyes! I want to change people’s perception on adopting older cats like I did with Gary and show how underrated their loyalty is”
