Read a Special Message from Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt, Who Recently Gave His Cat Away on Twitter

As Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation, Chris Pratt brings joy to millions. But apparently that is not enough for members of the cat-loving Tweet-o-sphere community, as Pratt became the target of an online smear campaign this week. Yes! Lovable Chris Pratt! It all started on Monday when he announced, via Twitter, that he was giving up his cat:

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)


Well, that about did it. Cat lovers started accusing Pratt of being a horrible person who would toss away a beloved pet just because the pet had gotten too old to care for. Only, they used far more colorful language and imagery. Well, like J-Lo, Mr. Pratt has had Enough. He took to his blog to explain the circumstances, and lash out at his cat-weirdo haters. It appears the text of the blog post may have since been deleted, but here's part of what it said:

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, first of all, cats don’t use walkers, so that’s a ridiculous notion. Secondly… I found my aging cat a god damn loving home! Ease up with the death threats for heaven’s sake!

Bottom line, and not that this is any of your fucking business weirdos, but my wife and I want to start a family and we ABSOLUTELY CANNOT have an animal that sh*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 sh*t affects me. I’m human. I don’t like being told that I should be “put on an ice floe when I get old and incontinent. Shitbird” or being called a “douche” or told that “prat=as*hole in england. looks like the shoe fits!” I know that already! Not to brag but I’ve been to England. “Pratt hey? Did you know that means Arsehole in the UK?” “Yes I did Prince William. Thank you for asking.” (it should be noted that I’ve never met Prince William, nor did he ever call me an arsehole) I am not an arsehole.


No, you are most definitely not.

Prat does not mean ar8ehole in England. it means idiot. There are lots of reasons why people can't keep their pets and finding her a good home seems honourable to me. When we moved into a new flat (in England) the people before had just buggered of and left their cat behind. We found her a good new home with friends who back onto a wooded area and the cat is happy and content.



When oh when will people stop taking great offence at Twitter. It is the easiest place in the world to go "nyer" at someone and hide behind your computer. Block them and move on.

Ahh...crazy cat people. There was absolutely nothing wrong with what Pratt said. He wanted to give it a home, not kick it out on the street.

I am sorry but I like cats more than I like brats and I think people find reasons to give away animals too easily, when they don't fit into their lifestyle anymore. If it was truely pooing all over the house, I would question why? Cats don't usually do that. Maybe it was sick?

The cat was old. Our elderly cat did the same thing - she was 20. We were able to keep her though (no babies to worry about) and just cleaned up the mess. She died in her sleep within a few months anyway, peacefully, in front of the fire.

wait.... so people are complaining that someone is trying to find a better home for a cat? If I figured out world peace will people complain that not everyone wants to be happy and I should go fuck myself?

"we ABSOLUTELY CANNOT have an animal that sh*ts all over the house."



He does know that babies do that too, right? ;-)



The solution is the same for both... diapers! And eventually, toilet training.

I was wondering what Nick Cannon was talking about this morning on the radio... now I know. Chris shouldn't have to explain. People suck.

I cannot stand this society where anything and everything you say, everyone takes it wrong. Those people who said they are cat-lovers and continue to berate you for finding a good caring home for your kitty are not real cat fans at all. From one cat fan who also is a father, to you, Chris, I do understand where you are coming from. I ended up giving my cat to my parents. People are too mean this day and age. But don't let it get you down. You are a good person, and your wife loves you alot. I hope this gets to you Chris, and know that you got at least one friend here in Indianapolis that supports you!
