Experience with animals and own pets
Ever since I was a little child, I have been surrounded by animals. My gran absolutely loved her dogs and cats, and that's where my love for them originated. I grew up surrounded by them, caring for them each day and I was fortunate enough to have plenty of pets of my own. I have owned hamsters, birds, fish and four doggies – one of which was a very naughty little Jack Russell.
This love for animals eventually lead to the adoption of my four current fur babies! I am lucky to have my four amazing cats as best friends. I play with them every day in the garden outside and give them lots of treats. In winter, they are my cuddle buddies and keep me warm at night. I shower them with love and affection each and every day.
Our youngest, Minkie, we picked up on the street when she was such a small kitten, and our oldest, Gizmo, was a feral cat that was very aggressive. However, with continued love and care, he eventually became the loving cat he is today. The middle one, Pepper, I also nurtured since he was a kitten. My last kitty, Timone, is very sick, so I am also familiar with giving him his daily medicine.
I am also lucky enough to frequently visit a friend with three beautiful dogs and an African Grey, so it's safe to say that any fur baby is my best friend.
I have never known my home to not have a pet, and I would love to extend some of my love for animals to someone else’s pets.
