Zookeeper of the Week 6/14: Zookeeper Sniffles

This week, we get to meet Zookeeper Sniffles! Aside being a passionate Harley Davidson fan (can you feel the rumble of her bike already?), she also rescues animals! What a great caretaker! Be sure to read on to discover more about Zookeeper Sniffles and hear the story of her most exciting animal birth.


1. Where are you from?
Chicago, IL is where i live now but prior to the mid-west I lived most of my life in the Pacific Northwest including N. Calif., Oregon, Washington State and Kodiak Alaska. (this puppy’s been around ^_^)

2. How long have you been playing Zoo World?
November 2009.

3. What’s your favorite part of Zoo World?
Anticipating what’s coming up next. Sharing with friends. We all pitch in and work together to build our zoos.

4. If you could be any animal, what would you be?
I’d be a koala. [After a bit more thought…] I truly do love Koalas but if i really thought about it, I’d be one of MY dogs… they even have their own swimming pool… LOL!…. seriously… I just bought it Monday night!

5. What’s your favorite animal-related memory? (a trip to a zoo? a favorite pet?)
I would have to say it’s when my mare foaled. I had delivered many, many calves but not one of my horses babies. She was ready and I wasn’t….LOL! She wouldn’t let anyone else near her except me. She had a very tough breech birth but we managed and both [were] healthy when it was all over and [we had witnessed] the birth of the cutest colt ever. Her milk didn’t come down at all so I bottle fed him from birth, I even slept in the barn. Momma got so use to me being around I was just part of the family until I began training her (she wasn’t even green broke when I rescued her miserable and pregnant)…..well that’s a whole other story…LOL!

6. What are you passionate about?
My Harley Davidson and animal rescue. Pretty much anything outdoors including cooking.

7. What’s your favorite…
Quote: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.” This is MUCH easier to read then to live by sometimes. Practice, practice, practice.

Food: Double chocolate cheese cake (yes….that’s a food…ask me and I’ll tell you it’s true… hehehe)

Music: I love almost all forms of music. Music can pick up or quiet my mind….it’s good food for my soul.

Movie: Some Like It Hot (it’s hilarious!)

Book: JRR Tolkien’s “The Hobbit

8. What makes the world go ’round?
Gratitude and Faith (not necessarily in that order but equal in importance…to me)


Thank you for sharing with us a piece of your life, Zookeeper Sniffles! We are so lucky to have you as part of the Zoo World family!
