Experience with animals and own pets

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened!"

This is a quote my life has been built upon as I absolutely love working with animals, whether charity work or my own spoilt fur-babies!

My daily-dose of fur comprises of my Tortoise shell cat, Camilla, my Burmese kitten, Luna, my feathered friend, Kuifie, and my busy jack-russels, Pongo and Snowy! Yes - this can be quite a houseful sometimes.

Growing up in an animal-loving household, I have been lucky enough to be involved in volunteer work at the SPCA, Wetnose and Wollies Animal Shelter, where I spend quality time with those in need of love! I also regularly house-sit for friends and family and take their fur-children for their weekly walks.
