Experience with animals and own pets

I’ve been a foster mom for orphaned kittens and stray cats for most of my live. I say foster mom but they are all foster failures and now live happily as part of the Pretorius family. I also have a rescue basset just to complete the family.

I have been looking after pets since I was born! I can’t remember any one time that we did not have any pets. I have had the responsibility to feed and look after all types of animals, including birds and bunnies. I absolutely love animals.

My wish was to be a Vet but unfortunately, I could not get my marks high enough to carry out that dream. However, this opportunity comes pretty close, even though I won’t be saving their lives I will get to take care of all sorts of furbabies and that makes me pretty excited!
