Paris Hilton Adopts Himalayan Mix Kitten and Starts Adoption Craze
The hotel heiress and reality star is well-known for her love of diminutive dogs, but last week Paris Hilton decided to explore her feline side.
She broke the news of her kitten adoption on Twitter July 29, tweeting, "I adopted the cutest kitten today. I named her Princess Annabelle. She is so adorable and sweet!" Hilton urged others to contact Laurel Pet Hospital in West Hollywood, California, where she adopted the adorable kitty. "There's other kittens there that are in need of homes," she tweeted.
Apparently, people listened. Dr. Meredith Rettinger, a veterinarian at Laurel Pet Hospital told Paw Nation that the practice, which also rescues animals, has since been getting "a lot of calls" from potential adopters. "Some of the people say that they would never have thought about adopting a mixed-breed cat, and that they've only had purebreds," Dr. Rettinger told Paw Nation. But seeing Hilton adopt a Himalayan-mix cat changed their minds.
