Experience with animals and own pets

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." - Anatole France.

Animals have always been an integral part of my family - and not merely as a pet, but as members of the family itself. As a child, I grew up with a large variety of animals in the house; ranging from hamsters, budgies and bunnies to cats and dogs (both large and small breeds). Through this experience, I have learnt that each animal has a personality of their own - which can be revealed if you merely take the time to see it. I have come to know that there is a great deal that can be learnt from animals and that they are possibly the best examples from which to learn. That's why I'm usually more excited to see my friends' pets than I am to see my friends!

After moving away from home to study, I longed for the joy that having animals in my life brings and so I realised that pet sitting would be perfect for me - as it would hardly be a job, but rather a pleasure, to do.
