Experience with animals and own pets

My name is Michael and I am 19 years old. I currently own two cats, Dexter and Oliver. Dexter is my cat and he is a ginger tailed Birman cat. Every night when I go to sleep, I call him and he runs and hops on my bed. He often sleeps next to me with his head in my neck, which is the cutest thing and it makes me feel so loved.

I have taken care of a bearded dragon before – cleaning his cage, feeding him crickets and cleaning him too. I have also owned dogs before and I had to bath them from time to time and feed them daily. My girlfriend has an African grey named Mina who is just an amazing bird! Every time I enter the house and she hears my voice, she climbs out of her cage to come sit on my shoulder.

She also has fish tanks which I have helped clean before. Two of my friends own hedgehogs, whose cages I have helped clean as well and I’ve taken care of them sometimes too. Another friend of mine owns a hamster and a tortoise, that I have helped look after on occasion as well.
