Hi! My name is Sylvia and I’m a self-confessed animal lover. The reason I started this website was to be a place for all of us pet fanatics to converge and share information.
Ever since I was young, I’ve bonded with animals in a way that was different than to humans, and I think this is what cements my love of them. Starting from when I had my first puppy presented to me at the age of five, I knew there was something special about animals and that I could relate to them without the complications or overthinking that sometimes comes with relating to human beings. Based on feelings and instinct, me and my puppy, Sooty, grew together and spoke a language that needed no words. Whether it was walking together or buying her lots of toys for dogs, and then teaching her tricks with them, we just understood each other.
Animals are Great Company
Animals in that way can be very therapeutic, and are a good energy to have around yourself and your family. They teach you responsibility and care, but also that some relationships need only a mutual understanding of trust and respect without words. In our hectic daily lives, having a pet can really bring you back to human instincts, reminding you of what is truly important in life.
Now… I’m not so young! I live in a little village outside of London with my husband and children, and I work in a vet clinic. Knowing how much I loved having pets throughout my life, I made sure that when my husband and I decided to have children, that we also had pets. I think it is a great way to teach children certain values, without having to prescriptively tell them; they just understand. We currently have a beautiful cocker spaniel named Daisy and two cats that the kids delightfully named Tom and Jerry!
Although, over the years I’ve had experience with lots of pets, from hamsters to budgies and even snakes (!), I really feel each animal has an individual story to tell, and it is our job as their companions to listen to it.
On Defence of Animal Rights
As I have grown up, I have become more active in the animal welfare community, and in particular the area of animal rights. It pains me to see people abusing their power over these creatures, and so being really involved in protecting them is important to me.
I started this website mainly as a resource for anyone to get the information they need for the welfare of their pets and animals! Hopefully it will serve you well. Also, I love hearing stories and anecdotes in my daily job about people’s experiences with their pets, so it would be great for this to become a community resource.
