Experience with animals and own pets

I was very lucky to grow up on a farm. I grew up with seven German Shepherds and I got my first cat at the age of 7 and she lived to be 16. I grew up with and have had experience with everything from birds, hamsters, fish, rabbits, pigs, horses, sheep, cows and cats, to chickens and geese. I was actively involved in their health care and training, as I've always been an animal person and love working with them.

We currently have 3 Border Collies and a Staffie, but they are with my parent on the farm. I live in Melville with my three cats Marley, Enzo and Jack. Marley is a long haired ginger gentle giant who is one year old, Enzo is four years old and Jack is just few months old.
