Cat Toys

When people adopt a pets they must also consider buying the necessary supplies for their pets. These are bowls (one for water and one for food), toys (especially for dogs beacause in the age of 3 - 5 months old they change teeth and chew everything that happens to be in their way), a litterbox with sand or litter gems (for cats only) and a leash (pets must be walked on daily). Some optional items that can be very useful are a pet carrier (indentical for a trip), a collar (although you won't need a collar very much if you live in an appartment, it will be necessary if you live in a suburb or in the countryside) and a dog flap (a dog flap gives dogs easy access in and out of the house).

Smoke cat

Cats have been in our world for hundreds of years since domestication. We have offered our homes, love and care as well as intervention (Breeding) to creat these lovable species. Cats evolved from big cats and were domesticated over years ago which started of with cats coming into contact with people as they began to associate people with mice rodents amongst hay grass and crops. People took advantage of the cats skills of hunting pest rodents like mice and used them as a source of vermin control. Today cats have since then evolved from resting in high tree tops to our laps. Cats may have undergone domestication, but wild instinct still runs in them today and as we play with them, the wild senses of a tiger.

Fawn Tabby Point Siamese

The Siamese breed has become one of the most popular in the world, because of it's beautiful appearance and distinctive personality. It is one of the oldest breeds of domestic cats known to man, originating from Asia. It's oriental heritage is very interesting, and the name 'siamese' comes from Siam, which is now known as Thailand. According to some legends, the Siamese was once considered sacred, and kept in temples by priests, and people of extreme importance. Siameses are also affectionate and intelligent cats, renowned for their social nature. Many enjoy being with people and are sometimes described as "extroverts". As there are extrovert Siamese, there also are some that have very sensitive and nervous temperaments.

Bengal cat 5

The Bengal is a relatively new hybrid breed of cat, formed by the cross of a domestic feline and an Asian Leopard Cat ("ALC"). Bengal cats have "wild-looking" markings, such as large spots, rosettes, and a light/white belly, and a body structure reminiscent of the Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis bengalensis). The Bengal cat has a desirable "wild" appearance with a gentle domestic cat temperament, provided it is separated by at least three generations from the original crossing between a domestic feline and an Asian Leopard Cat. The name Bengal cat was derived from the taxonomic name of the Asian Leopard Cat (P. b. bengalensis), and not from the unrelated Bengal tiger.

Shih Tzu 4

Dogs have been in our world for hundreds of years since domestication. We have offered our homes, love and care as well as intervention (Breeding) to creat these lovable species. Dogs evolved from wolves and were domesticated over years ago which started of with dogs coming into contact with people as they began to associate people with mice rodents amongst hay grass and crops. People took advantage of the dogs' skills of hunting pest rodents like mice and used them as a source of vermin control. Today, dogs have since then evolved from hunting in packs to eating from a bowl. Dogs may have undergone domestication, but wild instinct still runs in them today and as we play with them, the wild senses of a wolf.

The Beagle is a breed of small to medium-sized hunting dog. A member of the Hound Group, it is similar in appearance to the Foxhound but smaller, with shorter legs and longer, softer ears. Beagles are scent hounds, developed primarily for tracking hares, rabbits, and other games. They have a keen sense of smell and tracking instinct that sees them employed as detection dogs for prohibited agricultural imports and foodstuffs in quarantine around the world.
