Pet contest

29 Oct

I like animals a lot (but not as much the the famous animal expert “Mutsugorou-sensei” 😉 ).
We have a cute pet turtle and we’ve had a cat, rabbit and a bird in the past…and every summer we have a few カブト虫 (Japanese Rhino Beetles).

We also like to visit the many zoos in the Tokyo area and also look at the cute animals in pet shops.

I found on the Yahoo! Japan the 「Yahoo!ペット・コンテスト」 (“Yahoo! Japan Pet Contest”).

On this site people can upload cute photos of their pet and visitors to the site vote on the best ones.

Currently this cat is in first place on the Yahoo Japan Pet Contest.

This one's in Second Place now.

Third Place.

Of course, not all of the pets are cats. There are also cute photos of people’s dogs, hamsters and rabbits. I even saw a pig and a ハリネズミ (hedgehog) while I was browsing through the photos.

Here are few more pictures that I liked:


Do you like animals too? Do you have a pet?

    I should get my girlfriend to submit her dog’s picture to that website.

      Is it a cute dog?

        Cute for a 15 year old beagle. He has a pretty cute picture, actually.

        Wow! Fifteen years old!

        If you put a photo of your dog on that site, tell me the link to the photo.

        Have you seen my post with photos of my pet turtle?


      • jaydeejapan November 21, 2010 at 12:21 am #

        Yes, I did see it. I had a friend who had a pet turtle when I was a kid. Is it difficult to take care of?

        Yes, like most pets, caring for a turtle properly takes effort…especially in the cold months.

    It’s not so much the cats; it’s the photography that make them cute.

      I still think that the animals (not only the cats) are cute. 🙂

    CUTE! I love animals ~ I have two cats, Kermit & Otis ❤

      >I love animals

      Me too. All kinds of animals…even reptiles and insects (I dislike snakes, mosquitoes and roaches though. 😦 )

      >I have two cats, Kermit & Otis

      That’s a coincidence. My parents have a dog called “Otis”.
