I am delighted to report that Nicole Kidman, the much admired Australian actress and producer, has declared to the world on the Daily Mail website that she is a cat person. Great. I can love her more now. I think she’s a fine actress. And what I like about her more than anything else is that she has the courage to try new things and take risks.
“I’ve always been a cat girl.”Nicole Kidman
“….We have chickens as well. Alpacas, ten fish and two cats called Ginger and Snow. I really am a cat person. I’ve just got one of those carriers. Have you seen those? Those backpacks that you can put them in? Yeah, a cat carrier that’s a backpack and it has a window that they can peek out of and it’s got air and everything and they love it. I was actually going to post a picture of it and then I thought, ‘Oh, I don’t want to do that.’ But I may still because it is really cute. They hop in. They can’t wait to get in.”Nicole Kidman
Nicole is referring to this relatively new cat product which I have seen online. It’s a a backpack which gives cat guardians the opportunity to go walking or hiking with their cat in the backpack. It’s hard to believe a domestic cat would feel comfortable inside one but depending on the cat’s character they do and according to Nicole Kidman they like it.
She spends her time between Nashville and her farm in Australia where she has alpacas. I believe that the Nashville connection is due to her American husband.
She admits that she finds it difficult to say no and may end up working too hard and getting ill. Her husband, Keith Urban, is chilled out she says.
It’s great that Nicole Kidman describes herself as a cat person. It is a boost for cat welfare. I’ll have to try and get her to write an article for PoC! And where’s that picture of her backpacking with her cat?
