Experience with animals and own pets

Ever since I was born we have had a big variety of animals on our plot: Dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, geese and rabbits!

We have always had dogs and cats.

Most of our animals that we have and had, have come from families that were immigrating or animals that have literally just wandered in our garden with no-one claiming them.

I love all my animals dearly and enjoy caring for them.

I have also looked after my aunt’s 4 cats.

It is exciting looking after new pets so driving is not a problem!

My animal family now consists of 3 Dachshunds, 1 Staffie, 2 cats and geese. 2 of the Dachshunds are my babies! My ‘puppies’ as I like to call them, were a birthday present 4 years ago and that was the best birthday present I have received. I love coming home and the puppies always excitedly welcoming me home every day.

What I love about animals is that they always bring happiness no matter what. I believe that each animal has their own special personality which brings out the happiness out of you and others around you.
