I own a pug but when I see a beautiful cat, I can’t help but wonder if my jealous pug would be able to accept one in our home?
Two different species with totally different characteristics. Dogs are called ‘man’s best friend’ while cats are ‘man’s boss’. In a way it’s very true. When you enter the door, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been out for a minute or an hour, a dog would always let you feel how happy he is to see you again! With wagging tail and licks, that happy! With cats it’s different. They see you entering the door, they will not even look at you but ‘through’ you…like you’re wind or an entity! They have this aura of arrogance around them that makes you wonder why you keep them, ha ha ha!

Just kidding, I would love to own a cat again perhaps in the future..I think they’re beautiful creatures!

Typical Dutch Weather. When you are not from Holland and you hear a local Dutch mentioning ‘typical Ducth weather’, it means unpredictable weather. One minute the sun is shining the next moment hard rain pouring down your head, cold too like the sun was not even there minutes before!

That exactly was the weather yesterday we had when my aunt and I visited the zoo in Rotterdam, Blijdorp. My aunt had two small cameras hanging on her neck while I with my big dslr with a telezoom dangling on mine when we braved the rains and hard wind. It wasn’t fun the first hour being there in the zoo with all the gadgets we were trying to protect from the rains, but then the sun showed up and we had a dry and sunny skies the next hours. Only it was also cold. To make a long story short, because of yesterday’s crazy weather I am now nursing colds and coughs. Nose running so fast I couldn’t ‘catch up’, darn!

But I’ve no regrets you know. It’s been 13 years since I last visited the zoo and yesterday was extra fun because I did it with my aunt who is only visiting from the United States. She too had the time of her life and enjoyed photographing animals. Her last visit to a zoo was almost 3 decades ago!

Anyway, above was one of the sweetest moment I’ve witnessed yesterday.
