Experience with animals and own pets
I am currently a part time student at Kohl Makeup Academy. I have classes two Saturdays in a month and for the next month, I have classes every Monday as well.

For as long as I can remember, animals have been an integral part of my life. My first pet was a white kitten who I had taken off the street. I named her Catima, a name I found fitting at the time because I was an only child and having a sister with a name similar to mine seemed like a good idea. As the years went by, a variety of animals have entered our homes as well as our hearts.

Hachiko, the mischievous husky, who always seemed to have a smile on her face. Fear, the loyal Maltese, who came to be my mother's second child. Marley and Lady, the husky "twins," who are coincidentally the complete contrast to one another. While Marley is a happy go lucky fellow, Lady is a savage. A complete savage! At first sight, it is like she tells you "either love me or get out of here before you get hurt!". Then there's Ice and Choccie, Ice barks a lot because he has a lot to say and Choccie eats like it's her last meal. I admire her big appetite and it is something I aspire to. She is goals!

Finally, we come to Shelby. Our African Grey and my mother's third child. I would like to point out that I named her Shelby, after one of my favourite cars: the 1967 GT500 Shelby Mustang. I'll tell you; the spirit of that car is embedded into Shelby because she is one fiesty little thing!

In conclusion, I would like to say that I am definitely an animal lover, and given the chance, I will love your pets just as I love my own.
