C Is For Celebrity Cat Owners

A to Z Blogging Challenge...

Today C is for Celebrity Cat Owners

Unlike little lap dogs, no cat allows itself to  be toted around in a bag by a celebrity. In fact, if you put a cat into a proper carrier he will complain noisily until you let him out again. Then he'll ignore you until he wants something. They are like perpetual teenagers.

However, some will deign to pose with celebrities who are trying to show they have a softer side.

Being a cat woman, my view of celebrities winds up several notches if I know they are an animal lover. I even warm to them if they are dog lovers. There's nothing that can make me go "ahhh" quicker than the picture of someone I had assumed was cynical celeb cuddling up to kitty.

So here are a few celebrity cat owners, starting with the King of Cool, David Bowie. I must admit I'd never heard of Ian Somerhalder - an actor in Lost and Vampire Diaries I have now found out - but he was just so darn cute, I had to include him!

  1. Nice to meet another cat lover from the blooging challenge. Great post :)

  2. I know just what you mean. Animal people just have to be good people. Animals are never wrong. :)

    Seeing Marlon Brando reminded me of a bit of trivia - the opening shot of The Godfather, Brando has a cat in his arms. That was not planned, Brando happened to pick up a cat in the studio to pet and it became a part of history!

  3. Love cats! Unfortunately, I've developed allergies to a lot of things, one of them being cats.

  4. Ernest Hemingway liked cats and had some that were special for some reason I can't quite remember. I think it was to do with how many toes they had (really).

  5. Ha! I didn't find your blog via 15andmeowing, but I thought the same thing: Great to meet another A to Z blogger writing about cats!

    I've never thought about it, but you're probably right: it's easier to 'show off' with a dog in public than with a cat.

  6. You've never seen Vampire Diaries?!? Sorry. One of my favorites (or it was, but this season is kinda meh). That David Bowie pic is kind of weird. I'm not sure why.

    But love the pics.

  7. People who love animals are aok in my book. My hubby and I have 4 cats and 1 doggie. I am more of a dog person and my hubby is the cat man but all animals are just fantastic. Betty White is another major animal lover. When she was interviewed by James Lipton(I think that's him) he always has the same questions at the end. He asked Betty what is her favourite sound and her response was "A cat's purr"
