Experience with animals and own pets

Since my childhood, I have been surrounded by a variety of different kinds of pets and have the utmost love and respect for all animals. I've consistently had pets since the age of three, ranging from mice, hamsters, fish, snakes, cats and dogs and, since last year, I have become the proud owner of a tarantula.

Due to having animals of all kinds in my life, I'm experienced in looking after all kinds of pets. Most of my cats and dogs, as well as those who've crossed over the rainbow bridge over the years, have been rescues with traumatic pasts which taught me that love and patience can invoke the strongest bonds between animal child and parent.

As well as owning a variety of different kinds of pets over the years, I frequently babysit for the animal children of my family and friends, some of which include rabbits, tarantulas and hedgehogs.
