Experience with animals and own pets

I am so lucky to have Roger, my baby who we adopted from the shelter. He is a 5-year-old domestic short haired cat who finds every opportunity to climb on me, sit on my shoulders and show his affection for me. He plays well with my neighbour's cats who visit on a daily basis and loves to come to me and purr. I have experience in looking after my uncle and friends’ pets when they go away. Any animal that comes my way loves the affection that I give them.
