My childhood was very colorful in that I grew up in a private home with a large
backyard in the Bronx. My mother, trying to recapture her own childhood in Cuba
and Puerto Rico, had hens and roosters living in our backyard, as well as a
monkey and a talking bird in cages in our living room. She eventually sold the
monkey due to much mischief--like always trying to look up my dress (ha ha).
In adulthood, I worked as a certified dog groomer at pet-related businesses for 2
years (k-9 styles and Doggie Do). This led to my running a small pet grooming
business from my East Village apt. I eventually began boarding dogs, and
sometimes cats. I did this for around 7 years while getting a university degree.
Overall, I've had long-term as well as intermittent years of experience with
animals. The passing of my last set of pets-- 3 cats and a German Shepherd--
around 8 years ago saddened me so much that I decided not to have pets for
awhile. But now I'm ready to open my heart and home again to these lovely
creatures, albeit as visiting guests and temporary companions this time around.
transcribe from home. I have also been trying to write a book so, as you can see,
I do spend plenty of time at home. I will be available during the winter and spring
holidays of 2018/19, and any other time in between the holiday seasons. My
apartment is a small one-bedroom and it is minimally furnished-- just the way I
like it. It is safe for cats to play, sleep, and just chill out. I am an affectionate person by nature and the pet(s) I host will be the object of my touch, unless your
cat, whose boundaries I completely respect, is more standoffish.
