Experience with animals and own pets

Throughout my life, I have always been surrounded by pets.

I am currently blessed with 2 dogs and 3 cats, however, I have been the proud owner of numerous dogs, cats, fish and a bird who all have a special place in my heart.

I absolutely adore animals and firmly believe that loving an animal awakens a part of one’s soul.

I have previous pet-sitting and house-sitting experience and it would be an honour and privilege to get to know your furry friend!
