I’m Stella, I’ve just started working here and I look forward to meeting some of you and your pets soon. I grew up in a home where animals were part of the family; we had a dog, a cat and a fish. I can’t imagine a home without at least one four-legged companion in it, at the moment I have a black kitten called Snow! Cats or dogs people ask? Well, both when possible, but when it has to be one or the other my first choice would be a cat. Some people say dogs are more loyal, but I know that when I’m upset for any reason my cat will just sit with me, or on me, and just by being with me she helps me feel calmer. Cats can sense their owners’ emotions and offer comfort, just like dogs, and they’re such clowns at times. Playful, cute, silly and just adorable. The really special thing about animals is that they remind you of the most important thing in life…if you love them, they love you back. And there’s nothing more important than love.
