Experience with animals and own pets

Being a Landscape Architect student, I love nature and the wildlife it attracts. I one day want so specialize in designing habitats in a urban environment where people, nature and animals can live in harmony. Each month I donate to a dog shelter. I believe it’s important to support those organizations and that every pet deserves a home.

I have two very lovley, cuddle loving Schnauzers, Watson-3 years old (long leg Schnauzer) and Chelsey-4 years old (miniature Schnauzer) We adopted Chelsey when she was 3 and she very quickly become part of our family. I also have an adorable tortoise, Gulliver, who loves to roam in our garden and his favorite meals are his succulent treats.

I’ve always had a fascination with Sphynx cats and think they're adorable. I'd love to have one one day. Growing up, I had a very intelligent and kind Golden Retriever, Otto, and a singing and dancing active Cockatiel, Lucy, whom I’ll never forget and still miss.

I have pet sitting experience looking after two very lovable pugs, Wesley and Frankie who needs eye drops every day. Two beautiful Cornish Rex cats, Sushi and Tuna. Tuna needs to take a pill everyday. I have also looked after a family friend’s Boerboel, Julliete. Intimidating on the outside but the most loving and kindest dog you’ll ever meet. I also often assist a friend with feeding his fishes, shrimp, snails and Khuli loaches in his Aquascape tank.
