That would be awesome! Any cat, any size, I love them all!
How old are you? I'm 56 so the odds of my doing anything like that get slimmer by the day.
Besides that, I'd never find anyone who would want to petsit all of my kids!
Are you in, or plan to be in classes for animal health/science? That would probably help. Use the trip as part of the studies or even an internship!
Oh, oh, become a vet in a zoo! How cool would that be!!
