Experience with animals and own pets

I am fortunate enough to have two dogs, Bingo and Bounce, as well as a cat, Chester. Bingo and Bounce were both adopted from my local SPCA. Bingo is just a ball of energy who loves to go for long walks, get his tummy rubbed and is the most loyal dog around. Bounce, who we assume is a Labrador crossed with a Golden Retriever, is so calm and relaxed, and loves laying around on her bed all day.

My cat, Chester, is a funny animal and is the laziest of them all. He loves getting loads of attention, but only when he feels like it. He hates Friday's because the dreaded vacuum cleaner comes out to play. I have had the opportunity to help out at a local cattery over a previous December period. I have also house and pet sat for family whenever they have needed me to.
