Ok, so – yes – there are a plethora of Dr. Meemersworth posts lately. Sorry! We’re super excited, that’s all! We didn’t initially plan on doing this topic for the TL;DR, though, but it got a lot of thumbs up, so we figured it’d be appropriate to answer it now. Trust us: this site isn’t going to become nothing but kitten videos, ok? *shifty eyes*

Anyhow, we’re worried that some people thought that we caved into the temptation of a kitten mill, but we didn’t! We asked our Korean friend to help us find a kitten from a home owner, rather than a pet store or breeder. She found lots of RIDICULOUSLY cute kittens, some even a ten minute walk from our apartment, but they were being sold in pet shops. We’d either adopt a cat, like we did with Spudgy, or we’d get one from a home overrun by kittens. We just happened to find one in the latter category.

Also, some people are concerned about Spudgy and how he’s holding out with the kitten. Some also believe that we’ve been neglecting our wonderful dog. FALSE! We still take care of Spudgy and love him. In fact, I think we pay more attention to him now than before. See, Dr. Meemersworth doesn’t understand that jumping on things with her claws out is not pleasant for those jumped upon. The two of us can handle the pain, but Spudgy doesn’t understand why he’s felt a sudden burst of agony on his tail. So he has barked at Dr. Meemersworth, but it was a single short “BARK” which we interpret as “WHATTHEFUDGE!?”. When she’s walking by and minding her own business, or even sleeping or playing near Spudgy, there is no problem, but when she pounces upon our sleeping dog…he tells her where to go. So, to protect Spudgy from Meemersworth, we keep a vigil eye on them both when she’s in crazy play play go go go gogogogogGOGOGOGOGOGOG MEEEEEEEWWWWW mode. If she’s got the crazy eye on Spudgy’s tail (which, let’s face it, is a waving feather of blue fluff – super tempting to kitties of all ages), then we cover his tail with a small blanket and the problem disappears.

Last quick comment: we forget to mention in the video that – yes – four years ago there were no dogs around our area, but currently our city has the awesomest collection of Korean dog owners! Big dogs, small dogs, show dogs, dog trainers: they all hang out in the big park near our home. There is an actual doggy party meeting time on the weekend where the dogs learn to socialize and terrify all the Korean onlookers that don’t have dogs. It’s good fun to see a happy golden retriever bounds towards a horrified Korean girl in un-runnable huge heels! Haha! Good times. Has anyone else experienced this with their dogs in Korea? Or have you seen it happening?

Yeah! So that’s the story of how we got Dr. Meemersworth. How she got her name, though, is another long story. Where did she get her degree from? She must have a real first name, apart from Dr, so what is it? One day we will tell you. Oh yes. One day.

Cats are very adorable and also very curious. Our cat Pilar, now has like 1 year and 6 month with us, my family loves cats and we have 3.

    EatYourKimchi: What is the Korean view on dark skin? I am Indian and I love Korea, but would I be looked upon as weird or strange? Also, I know that Lee Hyo Ri, Kai from EXO and Yuri from SNSD are considered to be dark-skinned in Korea even though they are fair, so how are people that have deeper skin tones considered? Thanks <3 Akshayaa

  10. Hello , i’m Marion from France ! I wanna ask you if korean people are open to the foreigners .Generally , can they imagine to be married to a foreigner or they prefer to be with only koreans ? -sorry for my bad english !-

  11. Are foreigners discriminated against when it comes to competing for jobs? You know, do employers tend to favor Koreans?

  12. Weather-wise, what is a good time to be in Korea? Are there any parts of Seoul that foreigners should avoid?

  13. GET READY FOR THE SUPER KITTY SURPRISE LEG ATTAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCK!! Don’t walk too fast…That’s the only advice I can give you D:

  14. what do you guys to for a liveing

    • This IS what they do for a living. They came to Korea to be English teachers but their videos became so popular that they were able to quit teaching and make videos full time. :)

  15. what are your all time top ten favorite kpop groups and why?

  16. I asked this question before, but you guys never got to it, and I’m just curious soooo….How do people in Korea react to interracial marriages? Like if a Korean guy marries a foreign woman and vice versa?

  17. How is religion regarded in South Korea? Are there some controversial topics brought to discussion due to religion? Also, what is the most “popular” religion among the citizens?

  18. What are some english words or phrases that koreans tend to use a lot?

    I heard you don’t see as many big dogs like goldens in Korea, because of the size of the apartments and lack of green space. Is it really inadvisable to get a larger dog? I have a massive golden retriever sleeping on my legs atm and I don’t think I’d want to get a smaller dog that can’t cut off my circulation like this ;A;

  20. Lucky….I wish I could also get a cat, maybe a Scottish Fold, since they’re lazy, like me xD

  21. lunibelle

    Aww Meemers is so cuuute :)

  22. Do foreigners get charged more than a Korean for things such as taxi fares, things being sold? If so, how do we avoid this?

  23. Awwe, I wanted a pet, cat or dog, but my mom went berserk and said she is extremely allergic to animal hair. Turned out she was lying and she just didn’t want a non-human being in the house.
    Alas, all those lost years!!!!

  24. What made her pop out to you when you where getting Meemersworth was it hard to pick her out at all either

  25. I have two Pekinese dogs too! I named them Smooches and Snuggles (Kisses and Hugs) ^^

  26. Dr. Meemersworth you are so adorable
    Could you guys do like a special interview with spudgy and Meemersworth and ask them a bunch of questions that would be to die for
    Ps. You both are da bomb ^_^*

  27. I had the same problem with my cat when he used to take up pretty much 95% of my pillow. Sometimes I would wake up and not even be on the pillow anymore and he’s stretched out leaving no room for me at all. :/.

    Is funny how you describe the ladie in the elevator I can’t not imagine walking with my german sheepard, my rottwailer and my chihuahua into a busy street I bet they will let the street free for me =) Which often happen even here in California ,but here everyone try to pet my vicious chihuahua and afraid of the chill rottwailer .

  29. Re to the second last point, owners who let their animals just run around need to show some responsibility though. Never know what will happen. And the size of the dogs don’t matter if it’s fear. And there have been cases of people having to defend themselves against suddenly-gone-wild pets, and then the owners complain of animal abuse. Seriously. ==

    I’m really afraid of animals.. I don’t yell, but if I was in the elevator I would probably try to climb the wall too. I act just like that girl in the park did with spudgy.lol.
    So don’t be mean to people that are scared!(I’m only joking, I don’t really think Simon and Martina did anything mean)

  31. Dr. Meemersworth is the perfect age to train her to play fetch!!! I’ve done that with my Russian Blue kitty and he loooves playing fetch (like a dog!) :)

  32. my aunt has a cat named mr.tofu

  33. Emily Howell

    Okay, I know this isn’t a major question but I really want to know where you got those patterns on your kitchen cupboards and etc. I really love those. Its got some of my favorite things! Coffee and Cupcakes!

  34. Hahahaha my (Korean) ex-boyfriend used to be absolutely terrified of my cuddly cat. She would meow just to get his attention but I think he saw it as a death threat o.O

  35. koreanlovergarcia

    what do korean people thing about hispanics in korean ?
    and would korean guys date hispanic girls?

  36. Do you think you guys would ever do something like “Kpop through the decades” where you could track how Kpop has evolved over time? I think that could be interesting… Just a thought

  37. Do you think you would ever do something like ‘Kpop through the decades’ where you could show how Kpop has evolved over time? I think that would be really interesting…
