Experience with animals and own pets

I always think the animals I've come to know are the best, and that no other can be that amazing, until I meet the next one!

I absolutely love animals, most likely because my parents called me a cat since I can remember and that I probably believed them! We have shared our home with many cats and dogs, mentioning each one of them would require a couple of pages because I tend to form a relationship with animals even in a short period of time!

Currently I have a beautiful rescue kitten named after Niki Lauda (she was found with burns on her body) who absolutely loves cuddles and food!

I have done quite a lot of shadowing at veterinary hospitals, as well as hours at the SPCA, since I initially planned on studying veterinary sciences. I have taken care of a couple of animals and homes and know I will enjoy meeting new people and animals immensely!
