I can't remember a time when animals weren't an integral part of my life. One could say I grew up in a zoo of sorts.
There are actually videos of me, in my baby walker, chasing my uncle's cat, Flash, around, desperately trying to hug him. Though, I can't say Flash was necessarily all that into it, lol. And there are actually more pictures of that orange tabby in my baby album than there are of me!
I have owned many animals: cats, dogs, lizards, rabbits, rats, a ferret, birds, fish, I even raised hamsters at one point (never trust the pet shop guy when he tells you, "they're both boys.")
In addition to having my own "furbabies", I have had experience with many other kinds of animals, owned by friends and/or family members (like my sister's tarantula, Spike. Or my cousin's boa constrictor, Avalon). I grew close to, and helped care for, many of those pets as well.
