For so many people, well, 80% of the Dubai population, Dubai is just a temporary place. One day, every expat would go back to their home countries or go somewhere else. As a result, people leave furnitures, properties and sometimes, pets too.
We have taken two rabbits last year but had to give them to some family because they (the rabbits) were unhappy with us. We live in an apartment and keeping them in our small balcony outside was unfair. The floor would become unbearably hot during summer, scalding their paws. We don’t want them to be kept on a cage either. It was a wrong decision to accept the furries in the first place so we promised not to have any pets anymore.
It was heart breaking to see our little girl cry when she had to part with her furry friends.
There has been lots of ads in the expat community billboard (online) lately of cats and dogs up for adoption. Expats asking people to take in their cats and/or dogs when they repatriate. A cocker spaniel, bulldog and persian tabby cats were available for adoption. Now, these breed of cats and dogs (except the bulldog!) are really adorable.
But I have restrained myself. No pets for us unless we live in a house with some backyard. I hope the pets advertised will find a loving home soon.
Stop by An Island Life. My second guest post is up while the beautiful Kailani is still somehere enjoying some snow in Lake Tahoe with her family.
