I might get my DREAM job!!!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I HAVE to share this with "someone"!!! lol

My dream has always been to work with big cats. I have such a passion for them and think they are such great creatures. I got to have my picture taken with one and thought I'd gone to Heaven I was so happy.

Well I will be relocating to where I used to live and just recently found out there is a wildlife refuge up there close. I called and they will be moving soon to a new location and then opening up to the public. Then they will need employees. I told them I want to be a part of the team! Volunteer or pay...I don't care! What an experience that would be. I just sent my resume to them.

Yes, yes I know all about the dangers of big cats...I better get an insurance policy out for sure! lol NO seriously, this would be a dream and I'm praying it comes true. I'm sooo excited! I hope it all works out too. I'm soooo excited I think I'm gonna cry!

I'm sooo bouncing. I had almost given up b/c the place I wanted to intern with closed down. The other places are just too far away to travel. So...this is my last chance other than the zoo, to get close to the big cats. Ohhh I hope it works out. The owner says that it's hard to find someone who has a passion for cats who isn't afraid of them. I'm not afraid of them, but I sure respect their size! lol

HOW EXCITING! Be sure and keep us posted about it, I think it will be very interesting to hear first hand accounts of working with big cats. Good luck to you.

Thank you to ALL. I have to call her back in THREE weeks to see how things are going. It would be awesome if I could start volunteering NOW. *squueeels*

Gosh! I can practically feel your excitement through the computer! I got my picture taken with a baby lion once, and I felt the same way. I was bawling and the picture turned out horrible, but I remember every aspect of it anyway, so I don't need the picture! Congratulations! I sincerely hope it works out for you!

I have the picture of me with a tiger. I guess I'll have to upload it again as I couldn't find it on the computer any where. My children got their pictures taken with a lion cub.

I am very excited. I'm probably going to call tonight and make sure they got my resume and see if they want me to start on a volunteer basis NOW. ha ha
