  8. I am studying animal behaviour - specifically feline. I've learned sooo much (this, from somebody who was pretty confident she knew pretty much all there was to know about cats! :smile: ) Have you considered doing voluntary work at a shelter? I've been doing that for almost a year now and the things I've learned there are just invaluable.
    Good luck!
