In my childhood we couldn't have pets as we were all away all day at work and school, etc. At some point my father agreed to a gold fish (7 actually), but that was as far as it went. Luckily my grandmother had lots of dogs and I would make sure to make friends at school with schoolmates who had pets, so I could still play with cats and dogs regularly. Now, finally!, I have 2 cats, who think they're royalty.
In the clinic I work at reception and I'm responsible for imports; helping our clients to import their pets into Oman. I love being in a position in which I can keep families and their pets together!
