Meet Cathy

I have had a variety of pets my whole life. I have been in my home for 29 years, during which I have had dogs, 1 duck, 3 cats, and 1 rabbit that lived to the age of 10. I am known by my friends, family, and neighbors as an animal lover. I rescue animals, find owners of stray pets (always with success).
June 16th, someone brought me a 1 week old sparrow, raised and hopefully able to set free in the near future.
August 2. 2011, found a French Bulldog (yes, wow!) roaming the streets.
Through the signs I posted and the public trail I created, the owners finally found...

I have had a variety of pets my whole life. I have been in my home for 29 years, during which I have had dogs, 1 duck, 3 cats, and 1 rabbit that lived to the age of 10. I am known by my friends, family, and neighbors as an animal lover. I rescue animals, find owners of stray pets (always with success).
June 16th, someone brought me a 1 week old sparrow, raised and hopefully able to set free in the near future.
August 2. 2011, found a French Bulldog (yes, wow!) roaming the streets.
Through the signs I posted and the public trail I created, the owners finally found me. I had just bathed the little thing and we were taking a nap. They knew I would request proof of ownership so they immediately produced a recent cell phone picture of the dog. I refused a reward but they came back with a gift card and said they would take me up on my offer of dog-sitting anytime.
I love animals! I am very protective. I currently have 2 large dogs, and the Sparrow.
I like all animals and willing to learn and research information I need to learn about any pet.
I have also pet sitted, in my home, for coworkers in the past, One Iguana, in their home.
I also plan to appeal to several vet offices as a volunteer for the purpose of gaining knowledge in the field, and even office experience (if permitted).
I am considering making adjustments in my house to accommodate regular pet sitting in my home. Here is the big picture. My heart is with animals. I was an Office Admin for the last 14 years. I was laid off in May due to a reduction in the work force. I want to grab this time as my opportunity to make a career change that involves animals, where I belong.
