In what can only be seen as an affront to cat lovers everywhere, George Clooney is making headlines on National Cat Day for adopting … a dog. On this of all days! George and his wife, Amal, adopted a4-year-old basset hound mix named Millie from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society, the shelter boasted on its website.
“Millie was found without a home and hoping for food scraps outside of a local restaurant in San Gabriel earlier this month,” according tothe shelter’s site, which provided a photo of the Clooneys, Millie and their other dog, Louis, who was also a rescue.”Today her luck changed for the better when she was adopted by George and Amal Clooney. They were searching for a basset hound and saw Millie’s picture on Petfinder.It was good news that Millie and Louis hit it off and the happy new family headed home together.” Clooney also has another rescued dog at home, Einstein.
And in related news, could I get some semblance of credit for the restraint it took to not use a misleading headline like “George Clooney adopts!” for this one? That was big of me, I think.
