When I was younger…

When I was younger I wanted to be a vet. Now, twenty five years on, I wish I had been because it would have saved me so much money!!

I now have three cats, one of whom is diabetic. I love them more than words could ever say, but wow have I spent a lot of money on them! Worth every penny mind you:)

What did you all want to be when you were younger?

(They are rescue cats of course. Rescue it the best breed!)

    When I was very little I wanted to be a vet, too, which in retrospect seems really strange to me becasue I was afraid of most animals, except cats, guinneapigs and insects. In primary school I wanted to be an author and I still think, that’s great although not very likely.

      Well never say never! I was soooo bad at English in school and I just wrote my first book at the age of 33.
      LOL you would have to have been a very specialized vet! If I had my time again I would be a vet I think, wish I’d stuck at it now.

    Gosh, I wanted to be so many things: 17 years of ballet and dance, I wanted to be an actor, anthropologist, archeologist, history professor (this is why it took me so long to get a college degree). Finally, out of the blue, I decided to be an RN, advanced practice in clinical research and now, after years of writing poetry, and short stories for fun, I am a writer and author.

      O wow!!!! That is a long list! I think it’s amazing you have done so many things, and I bet you learnt so much too.
      Because I am an anonymous author I don’t want to say too much but I actually work in medical research (patient reported outcomes). The RN’s are my favourite to work with 🙂 (doctors make everything so bloody difficult!).
      Keep up the great work (all of it!)

    Growing up I wanted to be an actor, singer and writer. Of course, I’m neither of those things. Right now I’m just another pointless office worker who hates life. Ah, how depressing adult life is.

    Ohh, I get you, when you said you spent a lot of money on vets but it was worth it. I have 4 cats, and love them so much I can’t even…
    I know 4 is a lot and some people would say it is not good to have so many cats, and I agree that it is a lot but you see, I had two and then I save two 13days old kittens who’s mother got hit by a car and died. I fed them and was their second mother, so they stayed with me.
    But they have a lot of space, we have a decent house with big garden and they are all domestic.

    Sometimes ppl tell me I should have been a vet but I would never choose to be one. I can’t even imagine how hard it would be for me to deal with the fact that I couldn’t have saved every cat that needed my help, and plus,, it would be too stressful to study because sudents learn how to help animals on dead animals, if you know what I mean…

      O I love your story:). I love to hear stories of people taking in animals or rescuing them from shelters. SOOO much better than going to bloody buy one! Good on you.
      And I don’t think four is too many at all. As long as they can all get on (or at least don’t mind each other) it is fine. I have three in a small terrace house and it is fine.
      Keep up the good work and love to your cats :):):)!

    I wanted to be a vet too cause I was so hands on with the animals. Growing up was like being on animal farm. We had cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, rams, goats and pigeons. I took care of them all and it was so fulfilling. I turned out to be a lawyer no animals involved here!
