Robert Downey Jr. had at one time made his wife promise not to bring home any rescue pets. But in a recent interview he told Men’s Fitness Magazine that he’s had a complete turnaround after falling head-over-heels in love with a pair of abandoned kittens, Monty and Dart:
“To understand the way cats play and fight is to understand the secrets of the universe. It’s to understand Wing Chun, to understand the palace tradition, to understand yoga. I would kill for these young, sweet little feline souls, these two boys. I would protect them with my life. Eighteen months ago, I’m saying, ‘I don’t want any rescue pets within 100 yards of either of my residences, I’m sorry. I don’t want some, like, tripod, abused animal.’ I was adamantly opposed to the whole idea. And now I couldn’t imagine living without them. I’ve become one of those people where the Missus is like, ‘They don’t want to see iPhone pictures of our kittens right now. Stop it.’”
