Experience with animals and own pets

When growing up, I always wanted to become a vet in order to pursue my love and passion for fur babies! However things don’t always go as planned and my career path changed...but that hasn’t changed my love for animals.

My mom is an all breeds cat judge and a breeder of Maine-coon and Oriental cats so I am fortunate enough to have a large cat family to share the house with, along with 2 dogs and tropical fish.

My fur family includes:

  • 5 Orientals namely Candy, Oreo, Onyx, Azlan and Cleo
  • 4 Maine-coons – Skye, Lynx, Mika and Lacey
  • 1 Norwegian forest cat – Kiki
  • 1 Jack Russell and 1 Boston Terrier – Taz and Kahlua
  • A fresh water fish tank consisting of guppies, tetras, mollies, zebra fish and bristle-nosed cat fish
  • I promise to look after your animals to the best of my ability, and as if they were my own!
