Experience with animals and own pets

I am the proud human of 3 cats (Diego, Pudding and Tigger) and 2 dogs (Skye and Zavi).

Diego and Pudding are 4-year old siblings although they have completely different personalities. Diego is cuddly, extremely friendly and vocal while Pudding keeps to herself but will gladly thrust herself upon you for loves when it suits her.

Tigger is a quiet cat who enjoys curling up in someone's lap while watching TV. Skye is a beautiful pavement special with tons of energy and character. She loves going for walks and is sure to remind you that it is time for another one.

Zavi is an 11 year-old golden Schipperke. He is my little fuzzball and loves a good belly rub. He is mostly blind in both eyes so can get a bit spooked but mostly he'll just roll over and wait for a good cuddle. I have experience looking after the pets and homes of friends and am a sucker for an adorable furbaby.

Daniel assisted me on the global citizen concert last year. I was working as a live editor for MTV and AlfacamSA. He was a pleasure to work with. He exceeded my expectations on nearly every ground. A logical thinker that's not scared of hardwork. He worked long hours, kept a cool head and remained a dependable asset before, during and after the production had wrapped.
