I have always been an animal lover and I worked in a K9 unit during my national service in Singapore. As such I have basic knowledge of first aid as well as basic grooming experience for dogs. However, as I'm an overseas student here, I'm unable to keep my own pets. I currently live on campus at UNSW (Kensington) but as I live in a studio, I'm able to and have looked after cats (or other quiet and small animals). The longest duration I've looked after an animal here was babysitting a cat for 3 months when a friend went back home over the summer.
