I currently have two street cats I rescued from Dubai. In addition to caring for them, I also rescued, cared for, and re-homed a ragged, geardia-stricken kitten. I shared a home with a surly orange stray for 17 years and am well versed at coaxing pills and liquids down the throats of unwilling subjects. I trim nails too. I grew up with large mutts and quite a few chickens. I have large animal experience as well - I worked on a non-profit, educational dairy farm for a while. And I regularly host an elderly pug named PJ. I have an MS in entomology and worked for the US Dept of Ag for many years. I am recently back in the States after a year of freelancing and international travel, and am hoping to put off getting another 'grown up' job a while longer. I love dog energy and enjoy cuddling, playing, and exploring the Boston area with them. I live a half a block from a nice park with lots of grass and a trail that runs along the perimeter.
