Experience with animals and own pets

Misty is my sleeping buddy. Every night, I am lucky to snuggle up with my fluffy 9 year old kitty!

I also share my life with an elderly Labrador, called Snowball. She is a very caring and loving dog, who always makes me smile by greeting me at my car whenever I come home.

Though she is older and not as energetic as she used to be, here presence makes my days ten thousand times better!

I recently adopted a kitten whom we named Blue. He was found In a box in the veld along with 2 of his siblings.

Animals are the reason I study Zoology; one of my most beloved things to do is to go to game reserves and immerse myself in nature and all she has to offer.

I enjoy looking after animals, and look forward to meeting yours!

Additional Comments:

Tyla came to sit for late afternoon and evening - we had a wedding and I didn't want to leave my fur babies alone at home I could see that my two fur babies liked her when the initial meeting took place and they were equally as happy to see her again when Saturday arrived I felt comforable with her and honestly could enjoy my wedding without having to worry obout my very spoilt brats.

I definitely will recommend and for sure make use of Studentco and Tyla in the future.
