My Furry Bestie

This corner features pets of animal lovers every week. We hope new owners and those thinking of getting a pet will be encouraged to be responsible “furparents” through these features. We also hope more people will be moved to be kind to animals when they read about the great relationship that can be created between humans and animals.

“Pampam is our little fur kitten who was born with a deformity. She can't walk. She would just lie on her back, “ Mikyla says.

“But sometimes, Pampam can lift her body, “  she adds.

Despite her disability, Mikyla says she and her family decided to keep her and love her.

“Pampam loves to be cuddled and would just fall asleep on the couch,” she says.

“She likes to play with her tail and her ball, “ she adds.

Mikyla also said: “Whenever we go on out of town and go home to our house in Bulacan, we bring her. She likes to cuddle and play with her siblings.“

POTPOT is a five-year-old aspin with an adorable mixture of white and black colors, says owner Aurora Jose.

He is “pandak” or short but well-built, Aurora adds.

“I remember how my father looked at him, who was then bedridden. He said ‘ang gandang aso nyan’,”  Aurora recalls.

“He was then three months old,  a very cute puppy talaga, “ she says.

“Unfortunately, my father died so he did not see Potpot bloom as a wonderful adult dog, “ Aurora says.

Potpot is such a character, she adds.

“He loves to chase rats in the kitchen and always begs for table food,” Aurora says.

Aurora loves Potpot very much and declared: “Potpot is staying with us for the rest of his life... Dog is God.
