I'm a TV superstar!!!
Okay, maybe not a superstar (yet), but I'll be on local TV some time this month! We did the shoot yesterday and I loved getting everyone's attention!
Momma got invited by our favorite store, Bow & Wow, to do an interview with GMA7 (local TV network) about spaying and neutering. You see, momma is a strong supporter of that cause and she made sure that Qish and I were spayed and neutered when we reached maturity. We are also one of the top finishers of the SNAP (Spay and Neuter a Pet) promo of Bow & Wow, so we are able to help Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) fund the spaying/neutering of one cat. It's a great promo, plus we got a lot of nice freebies! My favorites are the harness and the pet carrier where I love snuggling in.

Now about the interview...We were at Bow & Wow Shangri-la early because we didn't want to get caught in bad traffic. Uncle Osler drove for us. When we got there, everyone was all over me! They all said I'm too cute and pretty! They even started playing with me and making fun of me. I always tell Qish how fun it is to be with people, but he just doesn't like to be touched by people he doesn't know. So it was only momma who can carry him, and he would lick parts of his body that were touched by other people to get the smell off! Geez, he never gets to enjoy going out :(

Momma and Uncle Osler were hungry so they left us at the store. I didn't mind, really. I was loving all the attention they were giving me! In fact, I didn't want to leave (teehee, don't tell momma!). When the TV crew arrived, they first interviewed the poppa of the other cat who's a Persian. I didn't catch his/her name, because everyone was busy so I didn't have time to make friends with him/her.
When it was momma's turn to be interviewed, she carried me like a baby, then she thought it was cute to put me in the shopping basket while the camera was filming us shopping for food. I loved it! I was a natural! I was born to be a superstar, me thinks :)
Everyone who saw me asked momma what my breed is, and she beams with pride when she says "Domestic Shorthair" -- that's the fancy term for a local cat, teehee. They all think it's a fancy-schmancy breed, but momma is quick to say that I'm a local cat, a puspin (pusang Pinoy - Filipino cat), whom she just rescued from the street! She wants to tell the people that local cats are beautiful, too! The cameraman kept on insisting that I must be "imported" (a cat with breed) because my eyes are huge and I'm just too pretty! They don't realize that if only they look harder, they will see the beauty of the stray cats roaming around the street. And they can give them a nice, warm home, too! See how happy I am to have found my momma and my forever home?

Before we left, I had a photo opp with my fans, err, friends at Bow & Wow! They were PAWsome! And you have to agree with me, that was a PAWsome day! Except that Qish threw tantrums, so he wasn't included in the TV shoot :(
