“I don’t remember one day of my life that I have not lived with a pet.
In childhood, there were Mickey and Squeaky the guinea pigs, Fred and Scampy the bunnies,
Mitsy, Marmalade, Petra and Ginger the pussycats, and Pepper and Minstrel the horses.
After graduating, I worked in Public Relations, then backpacked around the world for a couple of years.
During this time, I often gave my daily food budget to a pregnant cat in Indonesia (she loved a bowl of sardines!), befriended elephants in Thailand, fed bananas to orang-utans in Sumatra, rode horses and swam with dolphins in
New Zealand, and travelled hundreds of miles across South America to find the most amazing
colony of Magellanic penguins! After travelling, I could not return to the corporate world
and decided to follow my passion – animals, and Animal Magic was born!
Nowadays, holidays always include a visit to the local animal sanctuary. The European waif and stray cats always seem to find me and I end up in the cat food aisle in the local supermarket!”
