Me and my Maxy

It was only by accident that I found my pet cat. I found her only in the streets alone and helpless. Of course I like cats. They really amazes me in all possible way. I was heart broken upon seeing her so scared, wandering without a family. So I adopted her and named her Maxy. I had no idea why I gave her that name but I feel so good adopting her. She has this deep green eyes and all black fur which is so mysterious to me. So I took her home, feed her and give her a shelter. From that moment I know we have this special bond already and I consider her as my best friend.

But her first week of stay in her new home is hard too. One day while I am not a
t home, our neighbors stray dog happen to enter our place and bit Maxy until she could barely move. I rushed home crying and really scared for what happened to her. I feel hopeless seeing her unable to move. I really don't want to lose her so even though I know she is dying I still talked to her, comfort her and told her that I really don't want her to go but if it is destined for her to do this then I will accept it. I held her like a baby and let her feel that I'm still here not leaving her. And then a miracle just happened. On the next day I was surprised to see her recovering from her injury and trying to live again. I was overjoyed and can't describe the joy that I've felt that time. Form that very moment I know I wanted to be with my pet cat forever. And I will take care of her. I promised her...

Goodbye Baby Noah

Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.

Pig Wears Boots

My cousin from UK shares me this cute video of a pig, Cinder, who is scared of stepping into the mud. Her owner noticed this when Cinder went so scared and refuses to join her other siblings play on the mud. So they decided to try and get her a tiny boots instead, see if it will work. Turns out Cinder is so happy with her new boots finally went outside and play. The owner runs a sausage company but they claimed that they will never ever slaughter Cinder. She is more of a pet to them now.

Cats ~ The Joy Of Having One

They say "A dog is a man's best friend", but for me it is definitely a cat. Having cat as a pet is not as hard as other think. I believe dogs can be a more demanding pet that cat this is merely because, according to my observation, cats are more independent compared to dogs. Cats are passionate pet especially if their human companions treated them with constant love since their young age. Although sometimes they tend to demand more attention.

Contrary to what other people might think about cats, I believe they are not harsh all the time. They too know how to play especially the young kittens. I just love to watch them play with a dangling piece of string or a yarn ball. These behavior of cats can help them develop their hunting skills. I use to tie a string with a small bouncing ball on tip of it for my pet Maxy. She loves to lie around on a piece of rug too and sometimes playing, leaping in it as if it was an imaginary prey. With other cats, Maxy love to go on wrestling with them like they never get tired. And sometimes she sends me a message that she wants to play with me when she follows me wherever I am and suddenly playing with whatever it is I'm doing. Mirrors are her favorite too. She is always stunned seeing another cat on the mirror not realizing that it is her figure. Spots produced by a flashlight is another one that she wanted to chase.

Watching my pet play gives me inner piece that I can't explain and of course releases tension during the day. Just running my fingers in her fur relieves stress and seeing her happy makes me happy and contented too.

Maggie D ~ Our beloved Shar Pei

My First Shot Of Maggie D

Two months old Maggie quietly sat on the living room floor as she watched every visitor roam across the room. Watching her mommy closely in a distance, she remains on guard even at a young age, glancing on every strange movements. It is her first time to be left on the open with strangers. Maggie, whose eyes fixed in her mommy wherever she goes, is always protective and observant. As for my best friend, who is Maggie's mom, being patient and loving to Maggie are one the the important things that should never be forgotten.

Chinese Shar Pei is considered as one of the world's rarest dog breeds. The breed originated from China and they are also known as Chinese Fighting Dog. I somehow can't describe what I felt when I saw Maggie for the first time. At first I was hesitant. I mistook her for a Pug because of her looks specially her wrinkles but later I realized that she isn't a Pug. She is much bigger than a Pug. Shar Pei's has many wrinkles but there is a tendency that these wrinkles will disappear as they mature. Her coat is off-standing and rough to touch. Her cute ears are small and fall forward while her deep set eyes shows how protective she is.

Behaving Like Her Mommy Told Her

Maggie's mom who is my best friend is so happy to have her. It is only Maggie's first week on her new home but she seems to know her mommy even for a short period of time. Later that day when she is kinda used to other people, everyone is touching and playing with her but of course we always warned our friends to remain gentle at her.

That day we all welcome Maggie D as a new member of the family.

Cuddly Benjie

Visiting my friends home is now a lot more meaningful than ever. I love almost all kinds of animals but dogs and cats are my favorite. I got a chance to meet a 6 months old, half Maltese half Japanese Spitz dog. His name is Benjie.

Benjie's mom is pure breed Japanese Spitz named Timo while his dad is a cross-breed of Japanese Spitz and Maltese too named Swooshie. Benjie has a pure white fluffy fur which makes him so huggable. Benjie loves to eat rice and corned beef and his favorite pass time is slightly strange which is taking a shower. His owner makes sure he is always clean and well groomed. That's why I really love to hug him.

We took Benjie for a walk around the neighborhood that afternoon. Benjie is very obedient and kind to people. Like all Maltese, he is a very passionate and loving and is easy to train. Another unique thing about Benjie is that his left eye color is different from his right eye which is gray in color.

Well talk more about Benjie next time :) Oh I miss him already...

World Environment Day ~ June 5, 2008

Established by the United Nations General Assembly, World Environment Day is celebrated every June 5. Hosted by different countries every year, the whole world will be more aware of what is happening to our environment right now. With the theme "CO2, Kick the Habit! Towards a Low Carbon Economy", New Zealand is the country that's gonna host the event this year.

There are a lot of things that we can do to celebrate World Environment Day. As a matter of fact many Filipinos are getting more and more aware of the effects of pollution in our environment. Here in the Philippines,
to mark the World Environment Day 2008, the Children For Nature Movement shall hold a series of seminars on environmental management, such as water conservation, solid waste management, sewerage and sanitation, which shall be followed by a film show (Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth") and a clean-up campaign along the streets to encourage people to help keep the streets clean and free of trash. Also the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in partnership with the governments of Australia, Japan, Norway, and the United Kingdom, and the Asia Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate (APP) will host the Asia Clean Energy Forum- the premiere platform for exchanging experiences and forging new partnerships to act on clean energy opportunities in Asia. The event will bring together a diverse group of stakeholders that includes leading policy makers, finance professionals, civil society members, and private sector experts.

In Malabon Zoo, Manila, they have prepared something special for this celebration. The first Snake Temple in the Philippines was constructed on Malabon Zoo with over 50 species of snakes in there. That includes wild and endangered variety too. Malabon Zoo serves as the protection center for exotic animals confiscated from smugglers and illegal collectors. The zoo is a home of many kinds of animals specially endangered ones. It seems that the animals are celebration too because just last Monday, three Tiger Cub was born on the zoo and a Yellow Burmese Python lay almost 50 eggs which is normally up to 15 eggs only. Their celebration of the World Environmental Day become more special because of this. This Snake Temple on Malabon Zoo will soon be openi to public.

Nothing brings me joy but to see an animal happy whatever it is. I believe that they have to deserve to be cared, loved and respected. Because of this, I decided to create a new blog which centers on animals, pets, wildlife, animal rights and many more... all about animals.

This World Environment Day why don't we consider what we can do for our environment. Besides this is our home too. Whatever we do to it, the effect will always comes back to us. We must stop being selfish and self-centered, neglecting and being blind not just for our future but for the future of all.

Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)

The PAWS or The Philippine Animal Welfare Society is a Philippine organization whose mission is to protect and prevent cruelty against animals. Part of the goals of the organization are support shelter, veterinary services, education and public awareness, counseling and investigation and legal supports. A lot of Filipinos didn't know that PAWS was founded since 1954 by a British educator residing in the Philippines. His name is Muriel Jay. They pick up stray from the streets and give medical services to injured animals. That is the start of the mission of PAWS. While PAWS are actively saving lives in the country, the government remains not ready for it. PAWS is fighting hard even though Dog-eating and other atrocities involving animals are becoming rampant. But they did not stop until on February 11, 1998 Phil. Pres. Fidel V. Ramos signed the Animal Welfare Act of 1998 also known as Republic Act 8485).

Now PAWS has a animals rehabilitation center called PARC (PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center) and is ready for operation. The new animal refuge is located at the back of the Ateneo de Manila University, on the highest portion of a hilly 5,000 sqm. Meralco property in Katipunan Valley, Loyola Heights, Quezon City. This shelter gives home to unwanted dogs and cats which is lost and abandoned by their owners. Adoption program is also done in here to help the animals have a new home. A largest butterfly garden can also be seen in here. PARC is not one of the field trips destination here in the country where students are taught to love and care for animals, as well as nature.

Through PARC, PAWS can help enhance the awareness of Filipinos in animal welfare. Indeed we should all know that not only humans need care and love, but as well as all the creatures here in this world.
