Experience with animals and own pets

Since the day I was born, there has not been a day without a pet in our house. Both of my parents are mad about animals and I’m proud that I’ve grown up to be the animal lover I am.

I am the proud cat mother to three furbabies who were all rescued. Bella, a Korat, is the oldest and does not believe she is a cat, especially when we have long conversations. Peaches is a mix of everything - She started as a small baby but grew into a fluffy and gentle soul. Pixie, a Tabby mix, is a wild child who enjoys the occasional sleep on my head. Other than cats, I have also had a Labrador and a Golden Retriever and love both dogs and cats so much.

Because I do not have a dog, I do regular volunteer work at Wetnose where I walk the dogs and play with them and the adult cats. When CatzRUs has their old property I also used to volunteer occasionally with cleaning, feeding and playing with kittens. I love spending time with these animals who have often never experienced affection. I also look after pets in my family from time to time.

I am at my happiest when I am surrounded by animals. They are not pets to me, but friends with deep souls. Without animals, this world would be a dull place.
