Experience with animals and own pets

I like to see myself as being a complete animal person. I have an undeniable love for all animals that I come into contact with and absolutely love spending time playing with and just being in the company of animals.

In my lifetime, I have been a proud owner of many different pets ranging from birds such as an African Grey Parrot to dogs such as Dachshunds and Labradors. I have owned hamsters and fish as well. I have a passion for working with animals and can spend hours on end with them when I am able to.

I have experience when it comes to house sitting and pet sitting as I quite frequently have done so in the past for family members and friends and really enjoyed the experience!
