I like pets and animals so much that I seriously considered becoming a veterinarian for a good portion of our teen years, but those hopes were dashed when I joined the military and had to learn IT labor like python and C++ coding and programming.
While those years set myself and others up with a job that will pay our bills for the rest of our life, I still wonder some afternoons what life would have been like if I had gone to veterinary school instead of the Air Force.
At least I can have lots of pets and animals at our apartment now that I have the space with this big rural ranch with 76 acres surrounding it. It started with a few animals in a barn, but now I have a apartment full of pets that are causing this arena to suppose packed to the brim. I have fish tanks in every room, 3 cats, more than one cats, a gerbil, and a lizard. Needless to say, there are strong smells present in our condo that are a direct result of the animals that I keep as pets. They all have their own particular smells that I have to address, regardless of how clean I keep both them and the apartment that the two of us all share and inhabit. While they’re not a miracle cure for indoor smells, I have found that the special smell reduction Heating and A/C filters with activated charcoal on 1 side are harshly effective at knocking down airborne smells. The pet smells are often collected in the filters’ charcoal layer and will make the air running through the Heating and A/C system smell a lot cleaner than it would otherwise. I just wish the smell reduction filters weren’t so expensive, otherwise I wouldn’t suppose as bad about using them every single time I replace our heating and cooling system filter.
