Experience with animals and own pets

I have two amazing pets. Idiana, who is a playful Fox Terrier and Thomas, who is a lovable Persian cat. My favourite activity is giving Indiana a bath. She loves the warm water and the bubbles from the soap. I also love stroking Thomas and hearing him purr.

I have experience looking after the pets and homes of family and friends and I often go volunteer at Animal Ark shelter.

Additional Comments:

The house was kept clean and tidy and the cats did have fresh food and water, however, we can't say whether the pet sitter played with them or took them outside into the garden because we never received updates.

We got x1 photo of one of the cats sitting on her laptop, but no updates or photos or communication for the rest of the day. We can just assume that instructions for playtime and attention were followed.

Note from StudentCo: The problem was addressed - thank you ever so much for bringing this to our attention, Melissa!
