*PLEASE NOTE I CANNOT HOST CATS, BUT I CAN DO HOUSE VISITS* My name is Amanda and because I am under 18 my mum, Carla, will be helping my look after the animals. I live in Wodonga and I am 16 years old. The only place I regularly go is school (I don't have a job) so I have plenty of time to spend with animals.
I have loved animals my whole life. My family has had a galah since before I was born, and we also have a cockatiel, both of which have been feeding since I was about 10. We also have a cat, (who stays outside and isn't interested in birds) and I have my own cockatiel that's just over a year old, who I take care of. Our cockatiels are normally inside, but we put them outside when the weather is nice.
In primary school I looked after almost all of my school's animals (which included cockatiels, budgies, guinea pigs, chickens and ducks), and I cared for them like they were my own. I am currently doing an Animal Studies course through GoTafe, and as part of this I have been looking after 3 calves at school.
Animals can stay inside or outside (up to you) and I will give them love and attention, and treat them like they're my own. In primary school I also looked after my friend's rabbits for a few weeks at a time when they were away.
The other people in my house are my mum, dad and 15 year old brother.
