Any pet(s) you currently own or have owned in the past (all types!).
I currently share my home with Little Richard (parakeet), Tuni (hedgehog), and Rose (ancient Red Heeler). It is a diverse mix of pets, but everyone seems to do their part in keeping life exciting and making sure I get up at a reasonable time every day.
Your most memorable time with a pet you’ve owned or taken care of.
One of my most memorable experiences involved a pet rooster named Longshanks. He was the first chicken I hatched in an incubator, so I imprinted on him from a hatchling. It was hard to explain that this meant he didn’t quite understand the transition to the chicken coop when we got him some hens, and there were few nights I had to open the back door and let him roost over the shower for about a week every evening… But he was a very calm and respectful gentleman.
Why you became a pet sitter/dog walker!
My background in fostering and working with local rescues prompted me to want to further my opportunities in helping my community. With such a strong skillset taking care of animals, and a passion for making every animal feel comfortable and loved, pet sitting just seemed like the right place for me!
Why do you love working with animals & how long have you worked with them?
I have a LONG history of working with animals, since a very young age. Animals provide a unique opportunity for me to constantly expand my knowledge. No matter how many I’ve encountered, no two act alike, and I thoroughly enjoy getting to know them!
All different types of pets you’ve worked with.
Goats, llamas, chickens, dogs, cats, small exotic animals, birds, and reptiles.
