Experience with animals and own pets

On my 13th birthday, I was a young, energetic boy who was extremely excited to see what “gift” his parents had gotten him. I had always wanted a pet, having a particular liking to cats from a young age. However, my parents did not want me to get a pet until they felt I was old enough to take part in the responsibilities of caring for a pet. It was deemed that 13 would be an appropriate age and hence on my 13th birthday, I eagerly awaited to see what my parents would get for me. I was not disappointed!

As my parents arrived with Maddie, with my first glance of her I knew this wasn’t going to just be a pet, but rather a journey of love. Eight years, and a whole lot of scratches later, Maddie still brings that same happiness to my face whenever I get to see her. Starting university meant leaving the house and moving into an apartment nearer to campus. The building does not permit one to have pets and therefore, as exciting as campus was going to be, my heart did not want to leave Maddie at home. I do not see Maddie every day, but I make sure to go home as often as possible. StudentCo, therefore, offers me not merely a job opportunity, but rather a means to feel that love again with other’s pets on a daily basis.
