Experience with animals and own pets

I have always been an animal lover and have had pets my entire life.

I currently share my home with four cats: Ginger (who is 12), Misty (who is 3), Minx (who is about 13/14) and Tear (who is about 11); two dogs, Romeo and Juliet, both Huskies. I also have an albino rabbit named Luna.

My forever cat passed away very recently due to cancer, but he lived a long 12 years with us and was a very happy and friendly cat that I swear would smile with his eyes and knew exactly how to cheer someone up!

My family took Minx in as her previous owners were abusive, and we adopted Ginger and Misty when my aunt moved overseas and couldn't take them with her. We also adopted Juliet after her previous owners no longer wanted her.

We also used to own an African Grey. Sadly, he passed away a few years ago.

I love my pets a lot and consider them to be part of our family. I feel animals are a vital part of life!

Additional notes: Being a mom that finds it hard to leave my kids, Kayley made it very easy because they would never want her to leave, especially my daughter grew very attached to Kayley.

She was responsible and ensured that the kids were fed and bathed on the days she babysat for us. She was also extremely good at keeping the kids entertained while we were away.

If we were still in SA, I'd still be using Kayley.
