Experience with animals and own pets

Since I can remember, I’ve had animals all around me. At home, I grew up with all kinds of different pets: cats, dogs, rodents, fish, horses, bunnies and even chickens!

Currently, I share my home with my chubby little mouse called Charlie, my Cichlid fish Sprinkles and his friends, my beautiful ginger cat Biscuit and my very best friend, (for almost 10 years now!) a Maltese poodle called Shanny.

When I’m not at home, I’m either at the University of Pretoria, studying Animal Sciences (where I get to work with animals all day!) or at my stable yard, training and jumping my two much bigger furkids, Demi and Jorja. After my riding lesson, I love playing with the chickens or giving belly scratches to Ellie, a pot belly pig.

Whatever shape, size or specie your kids are, I CAN’T wait to meet them!! I’ll take good care of them and give them lots of love while you’re away.
