Animals have been apart of my life since I can remember and currently waiting on my own little fur baby to be born which is so exciting.
As I have my sister who is a vet nurse of 9 years, animal protester and vegiterian I know a lot of things about animals health and I know what to do in times of emergency and if I don't, she's only a call away /drive away. Which comes in handy and can leave you stress free knowing I have that connection so close. I have grown up having that relationship with animals where if I'm at a friends/family's/or someone's party I'm usually the one hanging out with the cat or dog and I'm probably more than happy to stay that way! For you, this is helping you doing whatever it is your doing away from home without that panic feeling.
For me, this won't feel like work, being a pet minder / sitter / career around the mornington peninsula is actually more a fun day/night and I'd be more than happy to help :)
