Macaulay Culkin walking a cat in a stroller

I always like to discover which celebrities like cats or live with them. With the right attitude to animal welfare, celebs can improve cat welfare. This is Macauley Culkin with, I believe, his current girlfriend, Brenda Song, who is also an actor. Culkin is 40-years-of-age at the date of this post and Brenda Song is 32. In the photograph we see Culkin pushing a cat stroller, which I like.

Let’s get this out of the way first. A lot of people think that cat strollers are a bit odd and only crazy cat people push them around in public. I disagree with that. They are useful for full-time indoor cats, particularly, as it allows them some safe outdoor time. Cat strollers are rare which means that when pedestrians see them in the street they sometimes look twice and sometimes they think they are looking at a baby in a pram until they’ve looked twice!

They can be good conversation pieces and a good way to meet people in the street. If that’s your kind of thing (before the coronavirus pandemic, I hasten to add). I have a cat stroller which I used when my cat was confined to an enclosure. He is no longer confined and therefore I no longer use it at the moment. Even if your cat is not confined to a home with a catio, a cat stroller is still useful because you can go to places where your cat wouldn’t normally go to. This is good to stimulate your cat. Although it might take a little while for a cat get used to it. Some cats adore strollers while others might not settle quickly.

I do not know whether the cat in the stroller in the photograph belongs to a Culkin or Song. Culkin’s and Song’s Wikipedia pages do not have any information about pets or animals or any sort. It is hard to tell what sort of cat is in the stroller. My guess is that the cat is a random bred cat i.e. not a purebred, and the coat is a ginger tabby-and-white. The cat looks overweight but that may be the position that they is adopted which is misleading me.

The bottom line for me is that I admire Culkin for pushing around a cat stroller! Either he or his girlfriend or both of them have this cat’s welfare at heart or are they just trying to look as if they are concerned? I don’t believe so. It implies that they are decent people because if you are concerned about the welfare of animals you have to be decent.
