Experience with animals and own pets

Hi, I’m Luke. I am currently an Actuarial Sciences student at the University of Pretoria and have just finished my first year.

I've had pets for as long as I can remember and have been responsible for taking care of them, along with my brother. This includes things like cleaning up after them, feeding them, walking them and so on.

I love animals and pets, but none more than my own two fur kids - Snow the dog and Purrcy the cat. Purrcy we adopted from a shelter and he has been with us for a while. For some reason, I am his favorite human and he will only sit on my lap and no one else's.

Snow we got from a family whose dog had babies. We don’t really know what she is, other than adorable of course, but she might be a cross between a Swiss Shepherd and a Labrador.

I’ll treat your fur-babies like my own, while you are away.
