Chris Pratt’s Cat-gate
Chris Pratt, aka the husband of Anna Faris who you know from “Parks and Recreation,” is on cat lovers’ s**t lists. On Monday, he tweeted a photo of a big white fluffy cat along with the message, “Anyone in the LA area want a cat? Full disclosure, she’s old and prone to accidents. So sweet though. And was in Stuart Little. Literally.” Later he clarified that he and Anna were looking for a home for the 19-year-old cat because, “We have pugs and she’s too old to deal. She needs one on one attention.” He then shouted out to Amanda Knox, “So happy for you and your family!!! Want a cat?”
Obviously, this didn’t go over too well in the Twitter-verse. Which I understand. You can’t just replace an old cat with younger, cuter pups?!?! When you adopt a pet, you take care of it for life. It’s a serious commitment.
Apparently, the backlash has gotten to Chris. He took to his blog to clear up the situation.
“To those of you somehow hung up on the notion that I kicked the walker out from underneath our cat and threw her into the streets … I found my aging cat a god d**n loving home! Ease up with the death threats for heaven’s sake! Bottom line, and not that this is any of your f**king business weirdos, but my wife and I want to start a family and we ABSOLUTELY CANNOT have an animal that s**ts all over the house. Sorry. If you are a parent you will understand. And if not, that probably explains why you have such a hard on for cats. Just sayin’. So please! Stop with the harassing tweets! That s**t affects me.”
I bet Chris is wishing he’d just posted some flyers around his neighborhood right about now.
