Experience with animals and own pets

For as long as I can remember I have always had an affinity for animals, and as my family and I moved to a game reserve when I was young, that affinity only continued to grow. I had a knack for finding and adopting stray animals, from injured King Fishers to, baby impalas, and even a snake a two.

Of course, I had my general "pets" too, which must to my parents dismay also continued to grow in number, horses, cats, dogs, fish, and even a Dwarf Chameleon to name a few. I was also fortunate enough to partake in Nationals for horse riding, in a multitude of disciplines. Needless to say I have always loved animals in all shapes and sizes.

Sadly as I am currently studying and do not have the capabilities of having my own pets at the moment. I am happy that I have found an opportunity to share my love with other people's pet companions through pet sitting and volunteer work. Which I have been doing over the last few years. So I would love an opportunity to meet both you and your pets!
