These are my Pets…

Samantha

Adopted in October 2012, she was a rescued Cat which I found at the Humane Society.

Kitty

Kitty’s story is actually sad. In one of my trips to South Beach, I ran into her in the Streets. She was in poor health, full of fleas and her hair was falling. She was scared of people. What caught my attention was when this Group of Nasty Girls yelled at her for coming close to her car and threatened to kick her if she came any closer (like we’re talking a TIGER approaching their car and not this small, defenseless, hungry, homeless animal just looking for someone who cares…). That made me angry. I immediately walked up to Kitty and grabbed her. She fell asleep in my arms. At that moment, I realized I had fallen for that animal. Kitty now has become the most adorable, loving Pet I have ever had! She’s very well behaved. She’s never been messy around the house and she is living proof that a small animal can truly provide a lot of love to you. Kitty is about 4 years old now.

Rachel

Rachel was rescued from the ‘death row’ (literally) of a shelter. She was in fact already scheduled to be put down the following week after we adopted her. The reason why she was going to be put down was not because of her health – but because she was just getting too old (1 and a half years old!) and no one had adopted her for months! I fell in love with her from the moment I looked at her inside her cage. What’s funny is that I had over 20 other dogs JUMPING at me in Glee… hoping to get out of there…. while Rachel had HER BACK to the door of her Cage… sad… hopeless. She caught my attention for being the only one there who was just that… hopeless, for she had been there for so long. She is now 7 years old.

Kitty posing for Pictures

I was sitting here in front of the TV while kitty was standing directly in front of me. I pulled out my Ipad and decided to take some pictures while she kept me company.

Miami Metro Zoo Animals Rodrigo Sobral Cover

Miami Metro Zoo Animals

Our trip today to the Miami Metro Zoo was Awesome! There were many animals that came out wonderful in the pictures, so I decided to post some of them on here.

The weather was nice. It wasn’t at all too hot. The animals however seemed pretty laid-back this afternoon – some of them wouldn’t even bother coming closer to us for a better photo opportunity. They were just too comfortable to move.

We had a Groupon Special, which I really recommend. For the Admission Price, you would also get Giraffe Feeding, Parrot Feeding, 10% discount off Merchandise and a Collector’s Cup with a drink, and an All-Day Metro Rail pass – so worth it!

It wasn’t until I got home that I realized I had taken almost 300 pictures altogether. That made my job selecting the best shots a lot harder than I anticipated – but here are some of the best shots:

A few Birds I ran into…

Miami Metro Zoo Giraffe Feeding Cover

Feeding the Giraffes at the Miami Metro Zoo

Today, we fed the Giraffes at the Miami Metro Zoo. This was my first time feeding Giraffes at the Zoo as well as my Mother’s.

It was an incredible experience to watch that big animal very up close as it gobbles down my bowl of salad in just a few seconds.

Visiting the Miami Metro Zoo

Today we went to the Miami Metro Zoo. It took a leisurely walk around the Park as we watched these amazing animals in their Exhibits.

What an Amazing Experience! It was a wonderful day and we sure had a great time watching Giraffes, Zebras, Otters, Birds of all kinds, Elephants, among other incredible animals – living happily!

I made sure to take some Amazing Pictures. Check out my other posts as well.

Here are some collages I put together of our experience:
