I wake up every morning to the fur and sounds of my cat. I go downstairs and to feed and take out the dog and feed the cats. I then go to school, where I am an animal behavior student. I then come home and, while being followed by my cat, put on scrubs (resigned to the fact that I’ll never get all the animal hair out of my laundry) and go to my job as an animal caretaker. I realized today how much my life revolves around animals, every day. It’s so natural I don’t even think twice about it.
