Experience with animals and own pets

Over the years of my life, I have been fortunate enough to be blessed with the most amazing pets! From our lovable Dachshunds Zack and Zoey, to our intelligent African Grey - Smartie, our playful cockatiel - Spikey, who also enjoyed the occasional study session, as well as Farrell, our handsome Budgie. They have all been wonderful additions to our family over the years.

In terms of pets other than ours, I have experience in taking care of various pets of friends while looking after their respective homes when they go away on holiday.
