Does Britney Spears live with a cat?

Yes, is the answer, and a dog. She adopted a Bengal cat around the time of her wedding to Sam Asghari who she dated for 5 years apparently. Solid performance! She does not say that her cat is a purebred Bengal. On Instagram she simply states: “Introducing Wendy,” next to a cat emoji. “It’s MEOW time boys and girls. And yes, this is the veil to my wedding dress.” She was married on 9 June, 2022.

Wendy is very Bengal-looking. Hence purebred and not a Bengal-mix. She is a spotted Bengal with arrowhead spots. The face is that of a classic Bengal cat.

Britney adopted an Australian shepherd puppy in February 2022. She named him Sawyer. My reading of the situation is that she now has two companion animals, one cat and one dog.

This brings to mind an important topic about which we have no information: do they get along πŸ˜ƒ. I would expect them to. Sawyer was a puppy. Pretty malleable character. Bengal cats, though, can be somewhat single-minded, athletic and sometimes a bit aggressive.

They are, after all, wild cat hybrids. There is a bit of Asiatic leopard cat in them, a very independent small wild cat species. Although it seems that Wendy is an F5 Bengal cat which is five generations from the wild. These are very similar to regular domestic cats in terms of personality, just a bit more active and demanding, it is perhaps fair to say.

I hope Britney has the time at home that she needs to be a good companion animal caregiver. I recently prepared an infographic on being sensible before adopting a cat. The same applies to adopting a dog.

There are some boxes to tick before that big step is made. I like Britney Spears. She has a nice face which indicates to me that she is a kind person. She must like animals and appreciates the power of pets! They bring a lot to people. And her attitude indicates this. On Instagram her caption to her looking nerdy (see picture above) is: ” I try to be sexy and shit on Instagram but those of you who really know me …. “Nerd of the Century” πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“ … but hey I think I pull it off !!!! Well not really …. or shit maybe I do πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚πŸ«’ !!!!”

She tries to be sexy! It is good because she doesn’t really want to be sexy, just herself. I sense that she finds playing up to the media and the whole celeb scene tiresome.

I just hope her life is stable and consistent enough to please Wendy and Sawyer. Cats need stable, loving homes. I am sure Britney is loving. Is her home life stable and secure enough for Wendy? Is it calm enough? Is Britney there enough?

You can’t be a good cat caregiver if you are not at home. I have a lot of questions about her relationship with Wendy which I can’t ask.

I would have preferred it if she had gone to the nearest rescue center and adopted a rescue cat. She chose a cat breed known for their glamorous appearance. A golden, glittering coat and a wild appearance. This chimes with her celebrity lifestyle.

But it would have been so much better if she had done the opposite. Put an ‘ordinary’ moggie in her home and love her to bits. What a message that would have sent to her 41 million followers on Instagram.

What she did was so predictable. I am a celeb so I have to have a glamorous cat. An accoutrement to her perceived lifestyle. She should have gone against the flow, against the grain. It would have been a far better ‘look’ for her.

And it would have encouraged others to follow in adopting a rescue cat or dog rather than buying a purebred.

There are so many other benefits such as improved feline health. Purebreds are nearly always less healthy than random bred cats.

Bengal cats inherit hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) as you might know. This is a serious heart disease. Moggies normally don’t inherit these sorts of diseases.

If your pet becomes ill with heart disease it isn’t nice. There is going to be upset and anxiety. One of the downsides of purebred cats.

In case you’ve never heard of Britney Spears here are a couple of sentences from Wikipedia:

“Britney Jean Spears is an American singer. Often referred to as the “Princess of Pop”, she is credited with influencing the revival of teen pop during the late 1990s and early 2000s.”

Below are some articles on adopting a senior cat. The best kind of adoption as you provide a service to a rescue cat who is vulnerable to being left of the shelf of a rescue center.
