Janella Salvador grieves death of pet cat of 17 years: ‘You have a spot in my heart forever’
Several months after the death of her pet dog Max, Janella Salvador is in grief once again as she lost Twinkie, the actress’ pet cat of 17 years.
Salvador showed moments from Twinkie’s wake while recalling how he was gifted to her when she was just 7 years old, through her Instagram page on Monday, Jan. 16.
“The hardest part about loving animals is knowing that you’re bound to outlive them,” she said.
“That’s [7-year-old] me in February ‘06, proud and ecstatic to be holding my advanced 8th birthday gift from my mama,” she added. “I found him at a pet shop in Pasay and fell in love so fast that I didn’t want to leave him behind and wait for my birthday.”
The actress then described Twinkie as a “perfect cuddly gentle cat anyone could ever dream of” and vowed that she will always keep him in her memories.
“Thank you for sharing 17 years of your life with us, Twinkie,” she concluded. “You have a spot in my heart forever.”

Salvador was comforted by fellow celebrities including Iza Calzado, Arci Muñoz, Melai Cantiveros and Alora Sasam, who all shared Salvador’s sorrow through the comments section.
In July last year, Salvador lost Max, who she described as her “first baby boy” and “partner in life.” The actress opted not to disclose the cause of death of both her pets. /ra
