Petting a PUSPIN (Filipino Cat)

Cats are lovable animals and I love them more than dogs. Filipino native cats are called "PUSAKAL" or pusang kalye in short (even the native house cats were called this way). We have adopted one and called him "Ming-Ming", nice common name, eh? Used to be bullied and tortured in the streets, these animals have their right to be respected too no matter how scraggy and dirty they look because of rambling in garbage cans and canals. All they need is a caring home. Don't you worry because unlike imported breed, they are not choosy regarding to the food they eat and not that sensitive too.

    Hi! i chanced upon this blog because of my love for native cats! yes they are lovable and i like cats more than dogs because they're low maintenance, actually I have six (6) adorable cats in my house and they're like my children.. :-)

  3. Does anyone of you know what is the breed on the common cat here in the Philippines?

    I don't think pusakal is right name for it.
