Petzone now the largest pet store in Kuwait

Post by Mark

petzone1

Pet Zone in Shuwaikh recently relocated to a new and much bigger location down the street from their previous store. The new location is so big it’s now basically a supermarket dedicated to pet supplies.

The new location is divided into three main spaces, the first area on the ground level is where all the supplies are located like food, toys, cages etc. Once you get to the back of the store it splits up into an upper floor and lower floor. The top floor has birds for sale and the space is setup nicely like a little zoo. The lower floor is where the grooming takes place and where dogs and cats are also displayed for sale. I love the new store.

Whale washes ashore on Failaka

Post by Mark

What looks like a Blue or Great Whale washed ashore today on Failaka Island. Whales can be found in the Indian Ocean so my guess is it got lost and ended up in the Gulf where it ended up dying.

Below is another video of the whale when it was first found while still floating in the water.

Update: A reader sent me the image below along with the following note:

Hi there!
I was walking yesterday evening on the beach close to the Village (Abu Hassania area) and I found 2 dead dolphins. One was decomposed, so it has probably been there for a few days or a week but the other one seemed to be there for 1-2 days and had a fishing net around! Such a sad thing to see…especially when in Kuwait there are only around 500 hunchback dolphins!

Someone attached a GoPro camera to a dji phantom drone and shot overhead footage of flamingos in Kuwait. Some really beautiful shots which you’d never think were shot in Kuwait. [Vimeo]

Extinct shark found at the Sharq Fish Market

Post by Mark

fishmarket

This story has been making rounds all over the internet the past few days but the actual discovery was made back in 2008. A shark species thought to be extinct was found dead at the Souk Sharq Fish Market. More interestingly though, flipping through the photos in the article, I had no idea shark fishing was so prevalent in the region. [Link]

Two baboons caught at a school

Post by Mark

K’S PATH were called in to a school in Salmiya yesterday to capture two baboons that were on the loose. The two baboons had climbed into the school from the streets forcing the children to stay inside until they were caught.

That’s just so random…

Kuwait Zoo to start selling animals

Post by Mark

animalsforsale

According to Kuwait Times, the zoo is going to start selling some of their animals because they have too many of them and not enough space. My recommendation is to go for a Pygmy Goat, they’re just too damn cute (they’d make great funny YouTube videos). [Link]

Cats safety awarness

Post by Mark

I spotted the flyer above stuck on a wall near Sultan Center Shaab and thought it was pretty thoughtful. A quick check of the instagram account @santanimals reveals its an account with the goal to help stray animals in Kuwait as well as creating awareness on animals in general. A great initiative.

3 Kuwait addicts hide drugs under dog

Post by Mark

Three Kuwaiti drug addicts and their massive dog were in their car heading out of their capital when a police patrol waved them to stop after suspecting their behavior.

The three quickly put the narcotics in a plastic bag and hid it under the dog before asking it to lie on the bag and stay there.

When the cops told them to get out to search the car, one of them warned the police not to come near the dog on the grounds it is savage and could be easily irritated.

“But the police insisted on searching the car…they were surprised to find that the dog is very calm and obedient…when they led the dog out of the car, they found the bag which contained hashish and other drugs,” Alanba daily said. [Source]

I thought this was funny to share.
