Experience with animals and own pets

I have grown up in a household which has always had pets!

Growing up, I had Maltese and various budgies.

Currently, I have two cats: Tigger who is ten years old and looks just like Garfield and Chloe, four years old, who thinks she is the queen of the neighbourhood and is white with crystal clear blue eyes.

I have always had a good bond with animals and enjoy being around them.

I have also had experience looking after pets and homes for neighbours and friends before and really enjoy the experience.
