We live in Christies Beach, just 5 mins walk away from the beach. We have a big enough house, for the family of 3 people. My parents and I love animals. When we used to live overseas, me and mom used to pick up homeless cats, mostly kittens, take the to the vet, give them a warm place and food, and then give them away to a new home. After a month we would check how they are going in their new place. All the animals used to get along together, never fought.
I had an experience looking after my friends dogs (1 boxer, 1 rottweiler up to 7 years old) and lizards, also aquariums.
I have my own cat, Billy, he's 2-3 years old, very friendly, does not care if we have other animals at home.
