Having a pet is also like having a baby. You take care of it, nurture it, and most of all, you fall in love with it. Be it a dog or a cat, admit that we surrender ourselves to their cuteness almost every time!
Our favorite Kapamilya celebrities were not spared and have also fallen victims to the adorable charm of their paw friends. Take a look at this celebrity dog/cat mom list we made, and the stories of how these celebs met their "babies".
1. Bea Alonzo
Bea only had her first pet dog this year and it was a huge decision. She had a traumatic experience with a dog when she was younger, and since then, she feared them.
But when Bea received a cute little pupper last January, she got obsessed at how gentle it was! She named it Walter White. We are happy for Bea because Walter White has helped her overcome her childhood fear. <3
2. Alexa Ilacad
Alexa took her fondness for pets to a whole new level as she celebrated her 18th birthday in an animal shelter last February. How admirable!
In spite of her love for pets, she never had one when she was younger. But now, she has her dog Blush who makes her really happy!
3. Kathryn Bernardo
Kathryn has a solid bond with dogs. She has hosted a pet party in 2014 where everyone was free to bring their own dogs. She is also a member of CARA Welfare Philippines, an organization that advocates animal protection.
This is Snow, a white Bichon Frise, who seems like Kathryn's bed buddy!
And this is Cloud, her Golden Retriever.
Last year, Kathryn got a new dog which she named Pablo!
1. Arci Munoz
Sexy actress Arci has always expressed her love for cats on her social media pages.
In an Instagram post last May 2016, Arci shared that ever since she was a kid, she wanted to have two cats. Cut to present, Arci is proud to show her feline friends Artemis, Salem, and Kakashi. Notice how two of her cats have different colored eyes!
2. Coleen Garcia
"Sin Island" actress Coleen is actually both a dog and cat parent. But in this feature, we'd like to focus on her fascination for the unique Sphynx cat breed!
Because her fiance Billy Crawford is allergic to cats, she had to send away the street cats she rescued. But Billy found a way to make things work -- he gave Coleen a hairless cat, a Sphynx, all the way from Russia! Coleen named her Anya.
In a post last November, Coleen said that Anya and her other Sphynx cat Dimitri have became parents to three kittens. Lovely!
3. Janella Salvador
Young actress-singer Janella also has a soft spot for cats. In an interview with "Tonight with Boy Abunda" last February, Janella and her on-screen partner Elmo Magalona shared their term of endearment for each other which involves... yep, cats!
Elmo said, "I know that she’s into cats, so while we were talking to each other, I just blurted it out. I called her Kitty."
Janella responded, "If you’re going to call me Kitty, I’m going to call you Meow, kasi Elmo, El-Meow."
Meet Janella's fur babies Hermes and Eye-moe (yes, named after Elmo)!
