Cory Brathall knows people love their pets.
That’s why the senior has been spending the early part of his January Term taking care of St. Thomas students’ fish and plants while the pets’ owners are away from campus.
Even though he accepts payment, it’s not about the money for Brathall.
“It’s really about the connection between the animal and the person, or the fish and the person, that I’d really be worried about rather than the actual cash that I’d get,” Brathall said.
The Cretin Hall resident will be offering his fish-sitting services for the rest of the semester.
