Pets

I have three rescue cats called Mindy, Monty and Meme, who are all domestic short haired cats, Meme and Mindy are black cats and Monty is a black and white cat, they have all been rescues from the vets as these colour cats are notoriously more difficult to re-home. I have a beautiful Golden Retriever called Poppy who loves to come to work with me and hang out with office workers and help with office duties such as shredding and bin inspections! I also have two rescue guinea pigs called Cinnamon and Clover who are very cheeky and spoilt piggies and a loan pony for my daughter called Bobbin who is a senior boy that acts like a foal
