Experience with animals and own pets

Animals have always been a huge part of my life and education. Starting from a young age, I convinced my parents to house multiple stray cats and would often take care of injured birds. A large part of my childhood was learning as much as I could from Steve Irwin and David Attenborough, both of whom are still my heroes to this day.

When I went to university, my friends and I started regularly walking dogs at the SPCA to make up for the sudden hole in our lives. This was one of my favourite activities and I have continued dog walking even now that I am back home with my pets.

At the moment I am lucky enough to cuddle with my own calico cat, Josephine, and my Labrador, Bella, every day. I am excited to get to know your interesting and adorable pets and taking care of them!
