Experience with animals and own pets

I am the proud owner of two beautiful cats, Mila and Leia, with personalities that outshine most people I know. My long-term plan is to get a dog as well, as I have a love for both cats and dogs, but in the meantime my mom's Great Dane keeps me on my toes. I love visiting shelters on a regular basis to give the animals some love and attention, and when I have the money, I try to take them some treats as well.

Please describe how you know this person:

I had to go away for a week as my father was ill. I asked around and a friend suggested Alecia as she had taken care of their pets before. Alecia's duties were to feed, and clean the cage/litter of my three rats and cat. She did so daily and even brought fresh vegetables for my rats which I thought was a kind touch. I'd recommend her to anyone.
