Experience with animals and own pets

I share a home with five beings. Three of them have two legs and the two of them have four legs. My animals mean the world to me and I will always go out of my way to protect and care for them. They have been a part of our family since 2010, but for as long as I can remember, we have always had animals.

Besides having our two dogs, Edgar and Zeena - two very energetic German Shepherds, at home, I had four stray cats, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Aqua and Meow Meow, that I took care of in Bloemfontein, where I studied. I had all of them spayed and vaccinated and they are now in loving homes.

In addition to having dogs, I have also had hamsters, birds and fish. I have always wanted to become a vet, but realised that I'm too emotionally involved when it comes to sick or abused animals. So I have decided to go into Viral Zoonosis, where I will be doing research on protecting animals and humans from current and emerging viral diseases.
