About the Author
My name is Ann "Paws" Staub and I'm a 28 year old stay at home mom. I have lived in central Texas my entire life. I graduated from college to be a Veterinary Technician in 2007. Immediately afterwards, I went to work at a small practice that treated cats and dogs for 3 years. I learned so much after working with 2 fabulous veterinarians during this time. My clinic closed down and merged with a much larger practice and I went to work there when that happened.
This 5 doctor practice treated not only cats and dogs, but just about any other animal imaginable. I helped care for birds, reptiles, small mammals, ferrets, and more. I quickly became enthralled with learning more about exotic pet care and medicine. I worked at this practice for 2 years and left when I gave birth to my second daughter in February of 2012.
I have stayed at home with my 2 girls ever since then. My oldest daughter is named Lily and she's 8 years old. She's a sweet, intelligent, and loud little girl. My youngest daughter's name is Violet. She never ceases to amaze me in what she's able to do. I still can't believe that she started walking at only 7 1/2 months old!
I own a 9 year old pit bull named "Shiner". Shiner enjoys sunbathing, laying on my bed, and eating stuff she's not supposed to. I also own a rat named "Nibblet" who is awesome! She is my first pet rat. Nibblet enjoys hiding things behind my computer and eating treats.
Staying at home after having such a busy work schedule, I became rather bored. I started to do some research about writing online and decided to start a blog. That's how I got here. I appreciate everyone who visits Pawsitively Pets! Thanks!
