Janella Salvador reminisced how her cat Fluffy, who passed away on Sept. 2, left special memories in their lives for the past 18 years. 

“Pets deserve to live longer lives. But 18 years is something… so thank you for choosing us to spend your precious life with,” the actress wrote in her Instagram post on Tuesday, Sept. 5. 

“Little Jea (Janella’s nickname) was over the moon when she got her dream white fluffy Persian cat (hence the name). I was always so excited to show you off to visitors and you gladly welcomed them every single time,” she continued.

In the post, Janella shared photos of her with Fluffy dating back to 2007, random photos of Fluffy with her late cat Twinkie, and her funeral with a note board that states Fluffy's birthdate and when it passed away. 

“In fact, you loved the attention. You would come up to us, sit right beside us, reach out for us with a paw and stare for hours until someone would finally give in and snuggle with you,” The Killer Bride star wrote. 

“You were the yin to Twinkie’s yang… whom you’re now reunited with in paradise. Run free and save some spots for us up there, my Fluffywuffwuff,” she added. “We will miss you forever.” 

Celebrities and fans sent their message of love and condolences in the post’s comment section. 

“Condolence sayo dae,” actress-TV host Maymay Entrata wrote. 

Actress Sue Ramirez also commented: “Hugs, babe.” 

In January, Janella also bid goodbye to her other cat Twinkie, whom she grew up with for 17 years. In July 2022, she lost her dog, Max.

“To some I might sound dramatic, but I feel like there’s now a big hole in my chest; that I now lack a part of me. It’s probably because I feel like I didn’t just lose a pet— I lost a partner in life. I lost someone who gave me the most unconditional love,” she previously wrote.
