Cute is the new scary

It was Cha-Cha the Chihuahua dressed as a small Pet Rescue ambulance who won the hearts of the judges and audience, too, among the over 70 dogs and cats competing for the title of Transylvania Star (best pet in costume) at the 14th Scaredy Cats & Dogs of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) recently. The Halloween fundraiser event was held at the Fisher Mall Event Center.

A pet blessing, aspins, puspins and Mr. Gizmo

It was my first time, after over 15 years of covering pet blessings, to bring a cat to the event. Being a professed dog-lover for almost 50 years is no secret. And, although I have rescued and taken in over 20 stray cats in the village where I live, this is the first year that I have actually taken a cat to the blessing.
