Find out why Norman Reedus is the perfect cat gentleman
If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, like me, you know Norman Reedus kicks butt as Daryl Dixon on this TV series. What you may not know is that he’s a cat man and he’s not ashamed to show it. So, here are the reaons I love him and you should love him too!
#1 – He plays Daryl Dixon, the hottest badass character on TV.
#2 – He has a black cat named Eye in the Dark
This is the story of how he got his cat: “My cat’s named ‘Eye in the Dark’ and when my son was about 5 years old, he said to me “dad, I need a little black kitten…” So I called all over New York City looking for a little black kitten and I found one that was in the East Village that was found in a box in an alley and the guy goes “hey, I have all these other kittens, you don’t want this kitten,” and I go “why?” and he goes “this cat’s never going to love anyone” and I said “I’ll take it!” and now the cat’s just a big fluff love ball.” From his interview here.
#3 – According to Norman, his best friend is his cat. How cute is that?
#4 – He dreams of having 12 cats.
He said in an interview that if he wasn’t acting he would “be living in a house in Montauk with about 12 cats walking around in a onesie”. Full interview here.
#5 – He is a cat blogger!
He created a Twitter account for his cat Eye in the Dark. Here he describes his black kitty as “the fatso that’ll either claw you or cuddle you”.
#6 – He has always been an animal lover.
#7 – He posed for a Cruelty Free International campaign to raise awareness and stop cosmetic testing on animals
#8 – Did I mentioned he is hot?
So, are you a Walking Dead fan like me? Did you know Norman is a cat person?
