Experience with animals and own pets

I am so lucky to have grown up on a farm surrounded by many beautiful animals! We rescued many dogs and cats and gave them all a wonderful farm life. Growing up we took care of and raised many animals from little ducklings to pink baby piglets! I grew up around animals and love every single one of them, scaly or fluffy!

Right now I share my home with my two lazy leopard geckos, Mushu and Storm, as well as two rescue doggies from the SPCA, Bella and Jessie. My leopard geckos love sleeping on my shoulder when I study or running around on my table (pressing all the keys on my laptop and messing with my programs).

I have experience looking after pets of all shapes and sizes at the homes of friends and family. I have also volunteered at the Heidelberg SPCA.

I am really looking forward to meeting you and your lovely pets! See you soon.
