I am a mother of 4. I am an animal caretaker at a veterarian office for 4 yrs,.My husband and I are going through a very rocky time in our marriage and are trying to make the best of it after 23 yrs. He's living in FL.and my self in CO. He has one son and I the other. Our oldest girls are on their own. At the present time Im down to 2 cats, 3 birds and 1 new addition hairless rat. My pets are my life and could not exist in this world with out them. I was raised with wild animals growing up and my new dream at the age of 40 is to get into wildlife the way I was brought up. A new journey that I know will fulfill me.I see abusive actions on pets coming into my work more and more everyday and I tell ya, It's not the animals actions that bring the abuse on,its the owners actions taking advantage of the gifts that come from the lord above. Animals are a gift to bring us happiness and its sad to see them being taken advantage of.
