My view of pets, is that they are truly part of the family and they all ought to be loved and cared for as such; whether they are furry, scaly, grumpy or friendly!
I am an animal lover to the max! Right now my pet family is small because of my school and work responsibilities, but I currently own an 8 month kitten named Bangles (who loves to get into trouble!) I have owned guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, finches, parakeets, mice, snakes, frogs, and fish in the past.
I pet-sit for my neighbors and friends frequently. My experience (in addition to owning my own pets) includes cat-sitting 5 cats in-house for 2-3 month stretches, dog-walking, dog-sitting, and small mammal care (bunnies, guinea pigs, hamsters, etc.) as well as fish/amphibians/snakes. I have references available upon request.
