Meeeeow~! Today we greet you in the language of the cat, because today is "International Cat Day"! That's right, for those cute, fluffy, evil fur balls we celebrate you! For this day, whether you are a dog or cat lover, let's take a look a look at some of those in the industry with a lovely feline companion!
#1: 2PM'S JUNHO AND HIS CATS
2PM's Junho is no stranger to cats; he has quite a few! From Johnny to Wolie, he takes care of a plethora of felines and is a known fan. In fact, his babies were once featured on "I Live Alone" where he was seen to be begrudgingly cleaning their toilets. If you're wanting more, his furry friends often end up on his Twitter or Instagram, so be sure to follow him for a glimpse of some cuteness every now and then. However, Junho enlisted this year, so he must be missing his tiny friends with every passing day.
On a sad note, Junho lost his cat Lambo in the spring of 2017. He wrote his song "Fine" in honor of his cat. Take a listen, but prepare some tissues.
#2: HYOLYN AND HER LOVE FOR VOLUNTEERING!
Ex-SISTAR member Hyolyn not only has cats of her own, but volunteers at animal shelters when she can! Actually, it has been said before she even adopted her first cat Reno, she first helped out animals in need. Her love for helping animals was heavily featured a few years ago on 'I Live Alone', where she was actually criticized by an MBC reporter for loving her cats TOO MUCH! Just imagine that. Now, even though she is busy with her solo activities, she often poses with her cats on Instagram, showing them as much love as she can.
Check out her cute cat aegyo here as she first wakes up in the morning!
#3: KANG DANIEL WITH ROONEY, PETER AND DUCK
A cutie pie and his hooman! You've got it, Kang Daniel has got three adorable kittens that he just loves to show off! All rescued by Daniel, his babies have to deal with their hooman's playfulness. Duck was just adopted a year ago almost to the day on last year's International Cat Day! Daniel proves to be a true lover of cats as he continues to share his love.
Watch at how excited he is to have his cats in the Wanna One house!
#4: DREAMCATCHER'S HANDONG AND NANNAN
Slowly rising up in ranks of the cat lovers, Dreamcatcher's Handong has shown recently her love for felines. Just this past March on VLive, she spent her birthday at a cat cafe!! How adorable is that! Watch as cats flock to her side.
She has her own cat, Nannan, who you can see here in matching pajamas. Not only that, but she's even become a cat herself! What a cute family!
#5: WINNER AND CATS (+ DOG!)
And how could we not mention Winner and their house of cats and dog? Winner's pets were shown in the show "Winner Four Pets Everyday," which you can see all of on YouTube! Mino has Johnny, a cute female Munchkin who loves to show her anger in many ways. Jinu has two hairless cats, Ray and Bay. Jinu is actually allergic to cats! He found this out after adopting them, but couldn't give them up so now he takes medicine to combat his allergy.
See everything from episode one here!
Yep, you read it right. You've seen the number 48 in a few groups, like AKB48 or SNH48. This time, we have NKB48, or NeKoBu48! "Neko" in Japanese means cat while "Bu" means group. That's right, eight years ago a clothing company decided to make a group for cats, with a general election and all! It should be no surprise that Japan actually came up with an idol group for cats, a place that has two islands of cats. Anyway, since then, the group has broken up because many of them have gone to good homes, but who knows? Maybe a reunion in the future? Check out member Ramu, dressed up as Santa!
And that's all! Thanks for reading about idols and their cute little friends. Remember, adopt if you can! If you know any Asian entertainers with cats, share some pictures! Or share some pictures of your own furry babies!
