Experience with animals and own pets

Since I was a little girl, I grew up around and loving dogs and cats. I have PLENTY of exprience as a pet sitter - as a child, I accompanied my mother who also performed house and pet-sitting jobs for clients; as an adult, I have been doing pet sitting since 2012.

During my spare time, I enjoy visiting the FORA animal shelter for volunteer work with my friends.

Currently, I do not own any animals but had adopted and owned a small kitten in the past. Although this is so, I LOVE spending time being around animals owned by friends and family.
