February has always been known as the love month. While we do dedicate this celebration to our significant other, or family and friends, we must not forget to also express our deepest affection to our beloved and adorable pets that has brought immense joy into our lives, just like these devoted Kapamilya pet lovers.
FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano star Coco Martin is definitely a genuine animal lover. He takes care of a variety of animals. He has around 10 dogs of various breeds including belgian malinois and a bulldog; he also has parrots and cockatoos, and Matilda, a black and yellow small ball python which was actually given to him by Michael Eigenmann during his birthday. When you scroll through Coco’s Instagram, you can see that he loves spending quality time with his pets. For instance, he would take his dogs for walks in their village and would take his parrots and cockatoos with him every time he works out in his mini gym at home.
Janella Salvador has previously introduced to fans her pet cats and dogs, but she recently adopted two ball pythons. In November 2021, it was announced that Janella will be taking on the role of Valentina in the highly anticipated superhero series Darna. Less than a month later, the actresses got her “baby girl” Versace. This was quickly followed by a second pet snake named Valentino. She explained in a post, “because two is better than one?”
Richard Gutierrez already has dogs included in his growing family. But back in December 2020, he decided to add Kingston the Green-Wing Macaw. In an Instagram post, Richard shared that he would bring Kingston with him to taping bubbles to keep him company as he was away from his loving family for weeks.
Andrea is also a dog lover just like most of our Kapamilya pet owners. She has three cute and adorable dogs named Oreo, Chewy, and Marley. Aside from taking care of her pet dogs, Andrea also became interested in having a pig as a pet. In fact, she gave herself a very cute piletg which she named Lily during the Year of the Pig in 2019. You would sometimes see Andrea’s pets on her vlogs and Instagram posts.
We often see on Yassi Pressman’s Instagram account that she definitely has a huge love for pets. She got cute bulldogs and one of them was actually named after her late father Ronald Pressman. And Yassi shared that this dog really helped her cope with her mourning when her father passed away. Yassi’s sister Issa Pressman is also dog lover and their love for canines went beyond just taking care of them as they already ventured into having a business related to dog care, marketing a line of dog accessories called “Presidential Paws.” Not only does Yassi love dogs but snakes, as well. Yes, you read that right. The Kapamilya actress actually has two small ball pythons, Fluffy and Sky. Yassi actually became interested in caring for snakes after seeing FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano leading man Coco Martin’s ball pythons. Since Yassi has gotten her pythons, she would usually bring them with her at work - she even brought them to her guesting on Tonight With Boy Abunda.
