Experience with animals and own pets

I've always loved animals and I've had dogs for as long as I can remember. As a young girl, I had birds and fish as well. I am now the proud mom of three beautiful orange Tabby cats - Belle, Smokey and Walter. Walter is so much fluffier than Smokey and Belle, which means he requires much more brushing… and he hates brushing! I really love cats because they're extremely independent animals, but still need to be taken care of.

I have one playful dog, Jessie, who I adopted from the Randburg SPCA. It didn't take long for her to get used to us. She's a cross between a Pitbull and another dog which we haven't identified yet. She's such an attention seeker and adores her little blue chicken, and if she likes you, she will bring her chicken to you.

My brother recently surprised me with a pet hedgehog. We named him Barry Hedgehog (Barry Hertzog) - he's a little grumpy and selective with who he lets touch him.

Animals are so innocent and pure, and they're the greatest gifts to this world. At family events, I'm always outside with the dogs or curled up on a couch with the cats. I also help my family out with bathing their pets and looking after them while they're away.
