To: Chan Kah Yein <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Dear dr chan
Fruitti was rescued in June 2014 with the other mongrels Tutti, Yogurt and Mackey.
Her first vaccination was done on 21/6 but as Tutti had distemper and Yogurt had parvovirus, she was in isolation and was given antibiotics and Vetri Dmg.
The vet said she cannot be given second vaccination until her medicine is finished.
Her medicine finished yesterday and she is now going for her second vaccination.
I am not claiming subsidy for her second vaccination because it has past the deadline as per the policy.
However I am claiming for the first one (receipt dated 15th July 2014). I hope the photos are ok. If ok, then my father will drop the form and receipt into your letter box tomorrow.
Fruitti is my last rescue until I can save more money as I am paying for the medical bills from my tutoring salary. For Fruitti’s medical treatment (RM585), my auntie and cousins helped to chip in.

Let’s be kind to at least one animal today!
The Portuguese government has made the mistreatment of animals a crime.
Those who inflict pain or cause suffering to a dog, cat, bird or other domestic animal may be sentenced to up to one year in jail. If the animal dies or is seriously injured, the person responsible will spend two years behind bars.
Owners who abandon their pets in the streets may also have to answer in court. If it is proven that a person endangered the safety of an animal while letting it loose, he or she may get six months in jail.
The new law was approved by four of the five political groups represented in the Portuguese parliament, including the three major parties.
The only party that voted against the law, the Portuguese Communist Party, said that heavy fines would be enough to prevent people from mistreating their pets.
The law criminalizing animal cruelty will undergo a final vote in late July but is highly likely to pass.
Kudos to Portugal!
I would vote for a party that supports animals rights or is at least sympathetic towards the plight of street animals and pass legislation that protects animals.
Take a look, it may or may not apply to your dog, but it’s good to know: http://www.mnn.com/family/pets/stories/11-things-humans-do-that-dogs-hate
So, the key is to empathise, and not anthropomorphise. But how much can we empathise when we are two different species and we certainly lack the ability to read their minds?
There is already evidence that koalas do NOT like to be carried for photography sessions. Yet, humans continue to do it.
We’ll never really know, so we can only read the body language and try our best to empathise.
Or else, as in Cow-cats, get ready to for a tetanus jab! (Note: Cow is my cranky and temperamental cat who has petting aggression, but at other times, is a sweet pussy!)

Hmm….is this why Pole eats like nobody’s business but has a supermodel’s figure?
They do “purrkour” when I’m not at home??
Wouldn’t you like to know?
I’m not sharing my secret.
Secret? What secret? Oh, you mean the secret to why I look so cute?
Highly recommended for all dog rescuers.
Eldad Hagar, a volunteer for the animal rescue organization “Hope For Paws,” had his hands full when he met a small, abandoned and petrified dog now known as Holly. But Eldad’s experience and patience allowed him to slowly win Holly’s trust.
