I cannot remember a time before having pets of my own. I was the kid who always brought home strays to take care of. I care about animals almost as much as children. I have years of experience with multiple dogs and cats of all breeds as well as fish, birds, reptiles, rodents, and horses. I have years of experience with walking, grooming, bathing, and training. I currently own a dog, a bearded dragon, and 4 cats; all of which I spoil. When I lived in Houston with my sister, we had our fair share of pets. Over those years I took care of 3 dogs, 8, cats, 4 birds, 6 rats, and a few fish. Not all at the same time, of course. We often took in strays and re-homed them.
