Anna Faris is ready to start a family with her hubby, actor Chris Pratt of “Parks and Recreation” and Moneyball! Yaaaay! They are going to have the cutest, funniest, most talented babies.

But before the loving couple gets down to work (heh), they need to tie up some loose ends. So: Chris Pratt asked his Twitter followers whether anyone were interested in adopting Anna’s beloved cat.

Bad move! Reports Us,

Unfortunately, Pratt’s inquiry was met with a several rude comments and even death threats, prompting the actor to address the situation on his official website.

“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,” Pratt wrote. “Secondly, I found my aging cat a g—damn loving home! Ease up with the death threats for Heaven’s sake!”

It looks like Mr. Pratt removed his blog post shortly after, and Google Cache has no memory of it. Grr!

I really feel for Chris Pratt. Don’t get me wrong—I would never get rid of my boyfriend’s cat. Or any cat! And I say that as a person who is allergic to cats (not deathly, no, but palpably).

But my best friend is an expectant mother, and her heart is totally crushed: she probably/definitely has to give up her beloved cat, Elton. Mind you, this isn’t like a weird 1700s superstition thing. That demon-cat has been feral since he was a kitten, and he has only become more freaking sinister these last ten years. He always slinks into the guest bedroom in the middle of the night and claws me in the eye. I have to lock the door! I’m telling you, given the chance, that cat would totally gnaw a baby’s face off. Fact.

  • This is true, we have family friends whose newborn baby was smothered by their cat during the night a while ago. It was awful and then they had to have the cat put down. It’s in their nature to be jealous or something.

    • That’s a load of crap. I’m not saying you’re lying about what happened to your friends, but the rest is completely untrue. It’s because of uninformed people like you spreading misinformation that cats end up tortured and abused.

  • This actually bothers me a bit. When you get a pet, you are taking the responsibility of caring for that animal for the rest of it’s life. It is a living creature and not just some object you can purchase from a magazine and give to someone else if you’re tired of it or “things aren’t working out.” Maybe people should think about whether or not they’re going to be able to provide a stable home before they get a pet. It’s called responsibility.

  • I have had a ton of cats in my life, I love animals. I have had to get rid of a couple because they were sick and I couldn’t afford to help them, now I read somewhere that was another factor in why Chris was trying to find a home for the cat. It was sick or something, so I’m glad he tried to find it a home instead of just turning it loose outside. And I certainly don’t think death threats are cool, come on people.
