Experience with animals and own pets

Animals are wonderfully intelligent and sentient creatures with a far greater capacity for emotion and depth than most would credit them with. They are a wonderful addition to any home as an endless source of love, comfort, laughter and joy. As such, I'm lucky enough to be graced with the presence of three cats and a dog, along with a few stunning tarantulas and an absolutely gorgeous baby dwarf ball-python.

My cats are Akiva, Ichigo and Venus, with Ichigo and Venus being two feral cats who adopted themselves into the family. My dog is a Fox Terrier crossed with a Jack Russel that we rescued from the SPCA and named Wattkins, which means ‘little person’. My snake’s is named Jellal, and my spiders are mostly named after various superheroes. I also have some experience in looking after fish and bottle feeding baby kittens, along with volunteering at places like Lory Park Zoo in Centurion.
