Introducing Peanut Meow Cat - A Girl Poor Little Stray Cat From The Streets Of Florida

Introducing Peanut Meow Cat - A poor girl stray cat from the streets of Florida now saved 

Our story of rescuing a stray cat. A lot of times, it's fate that brought us together. We won't looking for a cat to adopt, but the stray cat came to us for help. Most stray cats live pretty rough lives, they are natural hunters and are feral cats. The weather in Florida is pretty unstable and can put them at great risk in times of hurricane and flood. Stray cats can get run over by cars/ trucks easily as they are crossing the roads. Florida is where reptiles and wildlife such as snakes, alligators, and lizards tend to thrive. Florida is highly unstable and the weather is hot and humid and often very unpredictable so these street cats are endangered. Stray cats like to catch lizards, birds and other small animals to survive in the wild. Sometimes, stray cats like to dig people's trash cans in the suburbs in search for food. Most stray cats do not live over 2 years if they live outdoors based on many statistics. https://heidikimurart.com/collections/peanut-meow-cat

This blog designed is for anyone who is a huge animal lover like us. You may have just adopted/ fostered a dog from the animal shelter/ animal rescue center in your nearby neighborhood. There is nothing more meaningful than to have a lovely loyal pet that you can come home to daily and sharing time with your dog is highly therapeutic and good for family bonding.

WHY PETS?

As more and more people are not having children in the UK and the USA, more people are taking on getting some cute pets instead. Most people are delaying getting married and having children these days. And a lot of companies are even allowing employees to bring their dogs to work. It's very true that people who have dogs/ cats tend to be happier in general.

Do having animals really make your de-stress and become happier? Yes! There's nothing as rewarding as seeing your pet animals when you come home after a long day of work at the office.

Recently, I have been trying to look for a cute puppy at the pet shop. I wasn't just looking for any puppy. I was looking for a puppy that I could bond with. I was looking for a friend/ companion, a family member, and a fluffy cute animal to walk with daily. Also bring a friend who is a dog expert/ dog owner/ dog groomer/ dog trainer with you at the pet shop if you are a new inexperienced dog owner.

(Warning: The following are just general observations and our research on pet animals online and from books we read from the bookstore. There is no concrete solid results and it differs by case by case only as all pet animals are different in terms of temperament, breed, medical history, and size etc... We are by no means licensed medical/ healthcare professionals and we will not be responsible for any damages to your pet at all levels if you used these methods and did/ did not work for your specific pet animal. These are just general suggestions for your reference only.)

I read all about how to pick a puppy from the pet shop/ breeder. I realized all the malpractice within the pet industry and how the pet shops tend to put these cute pet animals in horrific unhygienic conditions in the back alleys and tiny cages/ display boxes. How they didn't clean the display boxes/ cages well enough and the animals get infected with incurable diseases. It was totally heartbreaking. I also learned about the dog farm in the dog meat industry in Korea when I was googling to find dog rescue groups in Seattle.

How to find a proper puppy. You need to find a reliable registered breeder within your local kennel clubs. There is one in London and there is also a Maltese association in the United States where they list all the registered Maltese breeders in the United States. I am a big Maltese fan and I realized that there aren't actually that many Maltese breeders in the United States. Luckily, there were 4 registered Maltese breeders in the Washington State.

I brought my teacher who owned dogs for the past 30 years and she taught me how to pick a puppy. You want to inspect its physical body, look for areas that it may have skin issues/ bald spots/ inflammation. Check their paws, and see if they are strong. Some bigger size dogs tend to have surprisingly thin legs that may signify that they may have knee issues in the future as they age. The size of their feet can also be a very helpful indication of how large they will turn as feet sizes tend not to change as drastically as their other body parts.

Check how they interact with other dogs. Some dogs are natural leaders, in the animal world, dogs are descendants of wolves, we call them "pack leaders", the leaders of the pack. These dogs are more suitable for more experienced dog owners as they may be harder to train for a beginning dog owner. Generally, you want to find a puppy that has a lower energy level than you so you can control it while it is at home and not overpower your presence as it can possibly do some serious property damage in your living space.

You can flip the puppy over to its belly and gently put some light pressure on its throat and see if it struggles and then surrenders to you. If the puppy surrenders, that means it's a good puppy for you. But if it start to get out of control and bite you and turn aggressive, it's not really going to be an easy to train puppy for you. 

You can also try to use a stick/ ruler and try to act as if you are taking the food away from your puppy while it's eating and see if it has guarding issues. This can be important if you have kids in the house as the dog may be dangerous for your young children. If it turns aggressive, then you should be aware. It's funny, the same happens for tigers and other big cats too. You shall never ever disturb an animal while it's hungry and eating.

So, what if you found a pet that you think you can manage to take home and take care of it for the next 15-20 years? It's a huge responsibility in both time commitment, and financial responsibility.

1. Go see a Pet Doctor, with one of the staffs at the pet shop. Most the time, the pet shop will send you one staff to go to the clinic for a general body check up. If you are in Hong Kong, the fee for a the most basic checkup is around US$ 50-60 Only. However, the cost can go up if you want to do more blood work / lab work. I had the same experience where the pet shop refused to let me see the pet doctor unless I put down the full price of the dog in cash. They said that I could just bring the dog to see the pet doctor after I put down all that cash, something like US$ 1,880 without being accompanied by a member of their staff. So, this becomes a big red flag to me as what if they accuse me of damaging the pet animal during the dog visit and refuse the give me the money back? I told my pet doctor about this incident and she asked me not to purchase from that pet shop.

2. See if they got the Chip embedded into their body. This is important as the number/ ID of the dog can pull up a lot of history of the dog in terms of health, birth dates and more. If you ever travel with the dog, the customs will also scan the dog and somehow see if it had all the valid shots that are required of the dogs. The customs in Canada/ US are usually very accustomed with pet travel. However, if you are going to countries such as Australia/ Taiwan, their pet travel rules can be very stringent. The dog could get send back to your original countries if it didn't have all the required documentations/ shots. Make sure that your dog is at least 6 months old before you travel with the dog. Traveling with a dog is very expensive so you want to try your best to prevent that.
