Here are some images that you guys can splash into those screens. They're not much but I'm hoping they'd help in the continuing quest to bring more attention to the homeless animals. All of them are in the 1024x768 resolution so i think they'll fit snugly into most monitors.

Shelter cat (and dog) on the the catwalk!

Posted by siyerwin on Wednesday, October 25, 2006 at 10:39 PM

Talk about hitting it big! A couple of erstwhile PARC residents, Kisha and Tiopi, strutted their stuff on the glamorous fashion scene last Saturday at the Furry Tales fashion show held at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall.

Kisha and Tiopi were both abandoned at the animal shelter but were lucky enough not to have waited too long to get adopted.

Kisha was brought home by a fellow volunteer Marian the same day she was abandoned at PARC. Her story actually got published on the April issue of Animal Scene magazine and she has since turned into a celebrity of sorts, as she had also won a place in the PAWS-organized Whiskers, Purrs and Tails cat show/contest held last August 5 at Eastwood. You'll find tons of Kisha images and magazine/newspaper clippings at Marian's online photo gallery.

Tiopi likewise was adopted not too long after he was abandoned at PARC. He was taken in by a pet-friendly company (Team Asterisk) and now resides in its office in Pasig. The office, home to 12 cats and one Tiopi, was featured in October issue of Animal Scene magazine so I'd guess that Tiopi, like Kisha, would also be no stranger to the limelight. Check out the article clippings in Liza's online photo gallery.

Below are a couple of Kisha's and Tiopi's catwalk moments! Most animal participants were pedigreed by the way and they were all pretty. But none were as charming as the homeless turned ramp models Kisha and Tiopi. :-)
