I grew up surrounded and taking care of cats and dogs, There have been times when we have had 7 dogs and 7 cats and a litter of kittens, If I can handle and enjoy that I can spend a day or night with your best friend!
Dead birds? No problem!
Made a mess in the hall? I've got it covered!
Long walks or a day in the backyard? I think i'm more excited then your pet.
