Experience with animals and own pets

I have five fur babies in total; 3 doggies and two kitty-kats. My oldest pup is Percy (named after Percy Montgomery), he’s an 11-year-old sausage dog who was technically a birthday present for my brother. My little sausie is Jonty (named after Jonty Rhodes), he’s 10 years old and way cuter than he is smart. My youngest pup is Avicci, or Peachie, she’s 6 years old and was a present from a friend whose dog accidentally had some puppies.

My kitties are three years old and sisters from the same rescue litter. Spoon is a fluffy ginger baby and Calico is a calico, they were also a gift from a friend and a surprise to my dad! I’ve had one other kitty and two other doggies who helped grow my love for animals, but they have since passed on.

My favourite way to give back is to give up my time to animal shelters as I believe that we should look after our planet and the animals that we share it with (Don’t worry, I won’t preach about my vegetarianism!). The only reason we don’t have any scaly or feathery babies is because my mom is scared of both, but I’ve secretly always wanted a little snake.
