We have just signed up as house sitters!
Check out our profile at Kiwi House Sitters :
I grew up on James Herriot, and wanted to be a vet ever since reading his books as a teenager. But why do so many vets write books? Probably because every day there are new encounters with clients and animals ( both good and scary!).
So why not share my adventures and encounters as I work and live with with such amazing pets ?! I will share with you the inner thoughts of Queen Esther the resident Siamese cat who manages our household, the animal insights my friends and clients share with me, and the antics of the cats and dogs I meet at Vet Clinics, House Sits and during my travels.
Every wonder what your pet is thinking? Or what really happens in a Vets day?
Welcome to Vet Around The World! Where I share with you my encounters with animals at home, at the Vet Clinic and wherever I may travel.
Love animals and they will find you
