Known for his expertise in the area of grooming, one of the stars of the Netflix reboot of Queer Eye took a big shine to a pair of kittens.
KC Pet Project posts Queer Eye star’s kittens adoption
KC Pet Project posted the following status about the adoption:
“What’s better than adopting one kitten? Two kittens!!
Congratulations to Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness on his adoption of two adorable kittens from KC Pet Project’s Zona Rosa Adoption Center.
The little black kitten was brought to us as a stray and the gray one survived deadly panleukopenia, which is similar to parvo virus in dogs.
Our veterinary team saved his life and now these two adorable kittens are best buddies in their new home. We’re thrilled for Jonathan and his purrfect new family members!”
Good grooming runs in this family
Van Ness, a professional hairstylist, knows a thing or two about grooming, so cats seem to be right up his alley. Afterall, what creature doesn’t have a nicer set grooming habits or decided regime than the feline set?
In fact, WebMD shares this insight:
By nature, cats are extremely fastidious. You’ve no doubt watched your kitty washing herself several times a day. For the most part she can take care of herself very well, thank you, but sometimes she’ll need a little help from you.
Petfinder goes a little bit further to explain:
When it comes to personal hygiene, cats are the epitome of cleanliness. They are naturally equipped with the implements to groom themselves: a barbed tongue with which to lick, forepaws they moisten with saliva and use as a surrogate washcloth, and teeth to dig out tougher debris. Believe it or not, adult cats may spend as much as half of their waking hours grooming themselves, their relatives and friends.
While as humans we have learned to take care of ourselves often with the help of tools, cats seem better equipped naturally. It is a good thing, then, that someone like Jonathan Van Ness is around to keep us on the straight and narrow. And to adopt a couple of kittens into his home.
