Resident pets.

I currently don’t have any, though I look forward to getting a cat in the future. I did leave two cats with my parents: Misty and Smut. Misty is the oldest one; she’s timid and soft-hearted, preferring to stay out of trouble. She’ll often enter a room slowly and cautiously and tends to jump at the littlest noises. I’ve had her for her whole life, so I know this is just a nervous trait rather than anything traumatic happening. Smut’s definitely a leader, very much in charge and letting everyone, both Misty and her humans, know it. She hogs the food, so even though I’ve given my parents advice on how to fix it, she’s still become very fat and is quite happy with this. Misty was adopted from a factory cat who had kittens, while Smut was rescued from the side of a country road.

What can we learn from our animal friends?

Compassion, empathy, patience, how to take care of a life that isn’t our own.

What is the best part about being a pet sitter?

Getting to know the people who have these pets as their friends, and the animals as well! Plus, I love to take care of animals.

What is your ultimate goal in life?

To travel to at least one place outside of the USA.
