You know, you just touched on something that I've been thinking about since the incident happened...

The slow death of the poor creatures in one of the biggest pet stores especially as animals have a strong sense of imminent danger.

Everytime I pass by that's all I think of.

I know ome might think me feeble especially as many humans are dying, but still, it hurts.

I hope that should it be arson then I hope this remains on their conscience forever with images of cute creatures haunting them till eternity.

Me too. I used to visit Oasis Centre regularly to see the pet store, even though I don't have any pets. In fact, it was the only reason I ever went there - and I used to buy stuff from other shops during my visits that I would never have gone to if it wasn't for those pets.

I honestly can hardly bear to think what they went through.

well, the management and owners can certainly "rest in peace" with their ginormous insurance payout...

PS. The pet store is next door, behind Pan Emirates Furniture. I hope they stay there. SD, head on over there and pick up a couple of those cute critters.

PPS. Get a pet.

Oh that is a fantastic idea! However I can't write about me - someone else will have to do it.

Would be cool if we had our own wiki page where we could detail the history of UAE blogging.

Hmm. We could do that. We need to do it in such a way that it wouldn't get blocked as irrelevant.

A review would be excellent, although asking someone from within the blog community would be maked it biased. Ask a freelance journalist to write it, an it could also make a feature in a magazine, as a number of peole have read parts of certain blogs before, and it would create awaeness of the community. Perhaps someone from whats on magazine, time out dubai, or even arabian business, if they would take it on. Worst case, one of the newsletter writers cold tackle it if they could add enough satire to make appealing.
