Experience with animals and own pets

Growing up, I have always had animals at home and been strongly involved with a big variety of animals.

I currently have 5 animals at home who I love very much - Zeus, Toya and Diggy are my fur babies, Quan is our ball python and Archie is my hedgehog and the newest addition to the family.

All my animals bring me so much happiness and I can't picture my life without them!

I have looked after many of my family and friends’ dogs and cats and also learnt a lot about horses when staying with my aunt in America.

Animals are one of my main passions in life :)
