When I was younger, I was convinced that I was the cat whisperer. I had a cat that had kittens and these kittens would follow five year old me around like little ducklings. Wherever Kat went, cats went, and that was just how it was. As I got older and went through high school, my love for animals never wavered, though my confidence in my intelligence and motivation to go through vet school, did. I was then convinced that I had a career as a writer ahead of me, a romanticised idea that I could move to New York, live in a loft in Brooklyn, and be an ultra hip, though most likely starving, writing sensation. So instead of following my passion for animals, I followed my passion for writing and went to Journalism school. After a couple, or rather many, bad decisions, including quitting school and working full time instead of pursuing post secondary education, I realized that something was missing. That’s when I started doing research and found a program at my local college called ‘Veterinary Technician’. After a little more digging, I found out that vet techs are a million and a half people in one.. Being a natural multi tasker, people person and self proclaimed cat whisperer, I knew that this program would be the perfect fit for me.
