Experience with animals and own pets

In my life I have had 2 gorgeous cats (Lulu and Sarafina) of my own, of which one sadly passed away recently (Sarafina).

It is my dream to one day share my life with an oh-so-maginificent Tibetan Mastiff!

I absolutely adore animals of any kind and find it hard to pass up the opportunity to give a good scratch to a passing by furbaby.

I have both pet experience of about a year now and it is one of my favourite ways to pass time. Having a cute little fur baby getting all the attention they could possibly want, that's definitely the best feeling in the world!

Additional Comments:

Carianne was friendly and very enthusiastic.

I could see from the start that she loves animals and from the photos I received it seemed like they enjoyed to be around her.

Will definitely make use of her services again.
