Experience with animals and own pets

I am definitely an animal lover. Andy, our 10-month-old cat, and Milo, our 2-year-old Miniature Schnauzer, are a testament to this. They are the perfect combination of pets and both of them bring their own unique set of qualities to the table, which I adore. They live and sleep with me in the house, although the door is always wide open for them to go outside.

Andy was adopted from the Sandton SPCA in February of this year, and he brings so much joy to my family and I. I am very supportive of adoption, because I believe that every animal deserves a forever home. I have always been the one who looked after our family pets, which included many dogs and cats of varying sizes along the years. I also regularly look after my aunt's pets as well as those of family friends.
