Experience with animals and own pets

Ever since I was a young child my life has always been filled with animals. My father owned a farm in Heidelberg where I spent many days playing with and feeding the animals with my parents. Our farm was filled with a variety of animals of many different shapes, sizes and colours.

One of my favourite memories would be bottle feeding my baby cow George whose mother had rejected him when he was little. Even after moving off the farm my family continued to have animals such as my current dogs: a staffe and a rescue, a stray cat we had taken in, fish, chickens, a Tenrec and a Ball Python.

Animals have always been a part of my life and I have always felt a strong attraction towards them since i was a young child.
