Movie: 10 Promises To My Dog

A Japanese movie released way back 2008 is about Akari, (her dog) Socks, and the 10 promises to a dog! These are the 10 promises:

1) Listen patiently to what I have to say.
2) Trust me, for I am always on your side.
3) Play with me a lot.
4) Don’t forget that I have feelings too.
5) Let’s never fight, ‘Cause someday, I’ll be big enough to win.
6) If I don’t obey you, I have a good reason.
7) You have school, and friends. But as for me, I only have you.
8) Stay my best friend even when I’m old.
9) I’ll only live about ten years, so let’s make every moment count.
10) I’ll never forget our life together. So when my time comes, please be by my side.

When I heard of the 7th promise, I just wanted to cry. I feel like animals now. Like how they should be treated and be loved. We have cats and they depend on us in terms of food, water and shelter. They only have us. No one else.

Akari actually didn’t keep her promises as she had to leave for work and thought of Socks as a burden. Ah, especially when her childhood friend came back from abroad. My sister commented, “Ano ba yan si Akari, lumalandi pa kasi.”

I’d give this movie 8 ★s out of 10. It moved me, even made me cry! Though I thought there were boring parts, too. If you want to watch it, click here. It’s the first part/eight parts from YouTube. Enjoy!

If you don’t like cats, I can’t marry you

I never liked cats until there were two kittens who showed up last year. They were adorable. Then until there were more cats who were born and delivered here.

Today, we are feeding *counts* more or less 20 cats. But only 8 (+ 4 new born) cats sleeps in our garage.  Plus another one who’s living inside our house.

I love them all now.


This year’s our cat year ’cause a lot of cats went here in our place to sleep, eat and play. We used to have eleven cats but two went missing till this very second. Mommy (orig), Daddy, Big Baby Orange, Big Baby White, Tiger and Baby Orange are the first cat family.  Mommy (2), Sungit, Whitey, Orange and Fatty (the missing kittens) are obviously part of the second cat family. Oh, there are cat relatives who visit them from time to time. Apparently, there are two lolo cats and there’s a moo cat. A moo cat is a black and white cow patterned cat.

This is tiger. He doesn’t look like a tiger though but my sister insisted that we call this cutie with such. :whistle:

Whitey doing a Chicken pose. Actually cleaning her tummy haha

Oh, Orange, the missing kitty since December 1. The kitty who likes to show off his tongue every shoot.

Since these pusakals (street cats) are nice and sweet, too, we feed them right (canned sardines – ’cause Whiskas’ too expensive – and sometimes chicken leftovers when we eat outside – yes we save the bones for them), I guess. On Christmas day, we’re going to feed them with Whiskas, yay! My father made an apartment (out of his old wooden ladder) for the kitties to sleep at with old shirts as bedsheets-blankets. <3
