I've grown up around pets of all sorts ranging from dogs and cats to horses and small caged animals. I love them all. I pet sat while I lived in Chicago for my 4 years of college and found it to be very nurturing while living in a busy city. It was a lot of fun exploring different parts of the city while walking dogs from the different neighborhoods. I'm a proud meowmy of 2 cats who I've had had for 4 years. I believe that our pets deserve the most love and attention that we can give them. I trained my cats how to walk on leashes so I could take them on adventures with me and I've also toilet trained them, so no more litter!
