Tomorrow I'm starting a two week placement at the RSPCA in the cattery and small animal blocks
Not sure what to wear though! I know old clothes as they'll probably get dirty. It's meant to be reaallyy hot, but I'm not sure if shorts would be appropriate They won't be short shorts, just knee length ones
I don't really own many shorts so have only worn trousers, so I'm not really sure. You can always wear shorts and bring a pair of trousers in case they think it is inappropriate so you'd be able to change in the toilet.
Personally I'd probably go in trousers on the first day and see what other people there are wearing. They may wear shorts/have shorts as part of their uniform etc. But tbh, if no one else was wearing shorts then I wouldn't.
I would probably wear trousers, but then I seem to get cold no matter how hot it is!
Doing what kookaburra said and checking out what everyone else wears first is a good idea.
In summer I usually wear thin combat-type trousers. They're cool and they dry really quickly so you can wash them for the next day
