Not too long ago I became the owner of two cats, one named Rella, and the other Ginger. I love them and they love me!!! I love music very much as well as singing, dancing, playing the piano, and drums, but if I had a choice I would play the drums everyday! I love life and I am adventurous and a bit of a risk taker. Thanks for reading and have a good day. 🙂

Hi, my name is Alijsha Gray and I was born in Chino, California. I lived in California my whole life until I moved to Texas in 2016 to start my education and become a veterinary technician. Animals have been my passion since I was 4 years old and growing up all I ever wanted to do was own, love, care for, and help animals of my own or those in need . I currently own a German Shepard named Dallas, a Siberian Husky named Kai, a domestic shorthair cat named Raine, and a Het Clown Ball Python named Melodi. Another one of my passions is music. I have been singing and playing piano since I was 3 years old and teaching myself to play the guitar and cello a few years later. I enjoy working with my Family PetCare family. I am a little shy at times but I always strive to keep our patients and clients happy. My goal is to always keep the purrs going, tails wagging, and smiles coming in my book.
