Hello everyone! I am Amanda P. X. Sim and I consider myself an animal lover, which is partly why I chose to take this class for the term! Moreover this class is not about common pets, but learning about magical pets instead, which makes it even more interesting! I have always wanted to have magical pets of my own, especially owls, and this class would be helpful in allowing me to know more about these creatures so that I can take care of them well. At HOL I had an owl and two cats before, sadly they all ran away when I was unable to feed them (shows how important commitment to pets is doesn't it?). Right now I have one Northern Saw-whet owl left, her name is Aiko Hoshimi and she will hoot thank you if you would feed her a bean!
In real life I do not have any pets, unfortunately. The main reason is because my mum has never been keen about having animals in the house, and she doesn't dare touch animals at all, although looking at them for afar is still possible. I on the other hand love touching animals, I don't mind reptiles either, the only type of animals that I really don't like are insects and wormy creatures. Other reasons for not owning a pet include lack of time to commit, monetary and space constraints as well. Throughout my life I have had the chance to pet dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, horses, geckos, tarantulas, fish, snake... but none of those were my pets! I already have plans to have pets of my own someday though, I would like to have four dogs - an Alaskan Malamute, a Samoyed, a Golden Retriever, and a Shiba Inu!
