I have always been around animals – chooks, ducks, dogs, cats, guinea pigs and birds. It just feels natural to be able to work with them.

Reading books and spending time with my grandchildren. Fishing on the river is pretty good too.

Five cats – Tigger, Eanie Meanie, Snow Ho, Little Girl and Yum Chow. Two dogs – Hooch and Ace. One horse called Sisto, and seven snakes, two lizards and lots of fish and birds.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

When I was little I wanted to be a horse but now I think probably a cat. I have five in the house. My cats have life pretty good.
